A friend of us was drawing these silhouette Superheroes for the curriculum night. Batman alone was about 4 feet tall.
Sara’s Third Grad Theme was Superman.
And here is Scott’s Wonder Woman drawing.
Sara’s school had their 7th Curriculum Night. This year’s theme: “Superheroes”. As we all know, Superheroes use and fight lots of science to protect humankind and the world. Superman explains, how a tornado forms; Spiderman invites us to learn more about his buggy friends (No, I’m still not a fan of spiders!); the Incredibles teach us about electric circuits. … Just to name a few examples. But before I forget to mention it: There are also our daily human Superheroes, which keep us safe and sound in our community, every day: TCPD & TCFD came for a visit to say “Hello” as well.
“I can let a cookie disappear! What’s your Superpower?”
Sara did very well, gathering all this information as a Third Grader. There are some flaws. But still, she did great.
Katelynn and Sara pass some time by playing, while waiting for their turn going to the gym.
Spiderman has a lot of friends for Science. Here are some ants made out of spoons, pipe cleaners and googly eyes.
The classroom doors were decorated as well
This was the 7th Curriculum Night at Sara’s Elementary School
Sand and Water … remind me, not to use this type of sand for the kitty litterbox. 😉
It turned out to be another great Curriculum Night. Sara had a lot of fun, learning something new. Even Katelynn had fun with some of the projects. She was amazed, when she touched the water bubble, which sat on top of the sand (Remind me, not to use this kid of sand for the kitty litterbox!).
Last night, Mars was at its closest approach to Earth with a distance of only 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometers), this year. In August 2003 the two planets were just slightly little closer with a distance of 34.6 million miles (55.6 million kilometers). The next time, when the Red Planet is closest to Planet Earth will be in the year 2035.
Tonight, I’ve got a good view of Mars on my street. At 10:00 PM CDT it is clearly visible in the southeastern sky. (08-01-2018)
Since last weekend, I keep an eye on the Moon, Mars and Jupiter. Last Sunday, the two planets almost “touched” each other, they were so close from our view on Earth. The view distance was less than half of the Moon diameter. This morning, the Moon was in a perfect position to capture a photo of all three celestial objects.
Luna, the Red Planet, and the Gas Giant danced together in today’s morning sky.
I always shrink my pictures to a medium size. Therefore you really can’t see Mars in this photo. For a better photo view, you might like to check out my link on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/132943299@N07/38735737935/in/album-72157686994312444/
