Spiders in Space!!
This week was the start of the Spiders' rotation in STEM. This year, along with the Ladybugs, the Spiders are exploring Space and the James Webb Space Telescope. This week we started things off with Balloon Rockets! (See the entry on the Ladybugs for how to do this fun, fun activity at home.) Then, we modeled the Universe. It was very interesting to see how much the Spiders know about what is out in the great beyond. Finally, we ended the week trying to answer the question "Is there anyone else out there?!" by discussing characteristics of life and what planets need to support life.
