Grade 5 students had a science day on Tuesday, October 10. Students had workshops organised in school as part of their work in the current Unit of Inquiry. They had to find out what a scale is and how to use it. They had to convert the radius of all planets from kilometres into centimetres, according to different scales. Later on they had to decide which scale was the best to make their own planets, then they cut them out (using their scale) and put them in order from the Sun. The biggest challenge was how to draw big planets and where to get a big poster, but they soon found out that they could use the big teacher’s compass and put paper together. They also prepared the exhibition hallway, where they put planets in order.
