Hey 5th Graders!
This Friday in 5C's current event sharing time, Martin informed us about NASA's space exploration budget. Specifically we learned:
"NASA has a budget that costs about $17 billion per year and it costs more than $60 million to take just one astronaut to the space station."
What are your thoughts? Should we be spending this money on space exploration? Why or why not?
Awhile ago we watched The Story of Stuff and students were asked to reflect on the causes and effects of our behavior and lifestyles. Alejo, DK, and João just finished their video of cause and effects. Please check it out and let them know what you think.
Here is the video we watched in class today. Please write (or record) a blog post reflecting on "The Story of Stuff" with your thoughts, what shocked you, and what you feel about it. Post it onto your Weebly site by Wednesday.
Before our colonists can set sail we need to bone up on our map skills. Try out the games below and leave a comment about something you learned while playing!
