1. The Night Sky (Tues. 5/4/10):
We used my telescope to look at the night sky.
2. The Moon
3. Ready, Set, Jet! (Tues. 5/11/10):
My Girl Scout center on the moon is turquoise blue with a purple door, and the windows are shaped like triangles, circles, and squares. There is a radar that picks up signals from the earth. For instance, if the Girl Scout center on earth wanted four boxes of Tagalongs, the radar would receive that and send a signal back. We would send four boxes of Tagalongs.
My outfit is blue and it has a helmet. It says "NASA" and "Girl Scouts" with a cookie in the middle. There is also a flag on the bottom.
This activity was awesome.
4. Shadow Time (Sat. 5/15/10):
We put the first sticks in the ground at 9:45 a.m.
The next stick was at 10:45 a.m. The shadow was shorter than the first and farther past the first shadow.
The third stick was at 11:45 a.m. The shadow was even shorter than the second and twice as far as the second.
This is something you could use to tell time on a sunny day but not on a cloudy day.
5. Star Maker (Tues. 5/4/10):
This is the constellation Taurus the Bull.
