For our Outer Space Week the Red Group won the Odyssey of the Mind contest with their alien.  The students were very creative using ballons, face masks and pasta to create an Alien.

Creating Galaxies

We studied all about the earth’s galaxy. Then students had a blast creating galaxies using chalk and paper.

We also studied about the stars and constellations.  Students created constellations using pins, star stickers, chalk and glitter. We had glitter all over our hands, face and hair.

 

To finalize our week we went to the Museo Geominero to study about rocks and fossils.  Students were impressed with the large variety of rocks. They loved the various animal bones on display.
