2019 is set to be our biggest National Science Week yet with a planned meteorite landing to be the stimulus for a week’s worth of cross curriculum activities across the school!

A local asphalt company will set up the meteorite site on Sunday afternoon. A local geologist will to visit and ‘analyse’ the meteorite and talk to the students.

Students will be engaged in literacy (narratives, informative texts), maths (measuring diameter, area), technology (using iPads to recreate the crash landing) and Indigenous Studies (understanding the prominence of meteors in Aboriginal history).  The students will also conduct an experiment to investigate if the size of a meteorite affects the size of the crater it makes upon impact and use air dried clay that simulates how asteroids are formed and explaining the journey from asteroid to meteorite.

This week is bound to make an IMPACT on the students learning!
