Space Day

On Thursday 8th of August, Zion Preschool children arrived wearing some very ‘interesting’ space costumes.  There were a variety of aliens, monsters and children wearing crazy space helmets.

space-dayOver the past weeks, the children have been exploring space. Some interesting facts we found out were:-

  • Astronauts float on the moon;
  • The moon has craters;
  • There are aliens up there;
  • Some planets have rings around them

We talked a lot about what the air was like in space. We did an experiment of releasing balloons blown up with our own air and balloons filled with helium. We discovered that the balloons with helium kept going right up into space.

(Thanks to the Helium House for your kind donation of the balloons).
