EARTH and SPACE

Students learn through the use of hands-on activities, about the immense size of the Solar System and from simulations and experiments have infer its formation. They gather and compare data to analyse the composition of asteroids, their density and various properties. They create models of comets and with the use of scale models compare the Earth to the Moon and the location of the Sun within the Milky Way Galaxy. Students take a detailed study of the structure of the Earth and Mars and examine their differences.
