Orbits Song

"To the tune of The Farmer in the Dell"

The Earth goes 'round the sun,

The Earth goes 'round the sun.

Once a year, every year,

The Earth goes 'round the sun!

The moon goes 'round the Earth,

The moon goes 'round the Earth.

Once a month, every month,

The moon goes 'round the Earth!

The Earth turns around,

The Earth turns around.

Once a day, every day,

The Earth turns around!

Apollo 13 was a spacecraft meant to land on the Moon in 1970. They had to come back to earth because the spacecraft wasn't working properly, but they did capture some amazing images of the moon from space!

Watch this video to see what they saw.

Could Aliens exist? What do scientists think?

What do livings things need to survive?

Why haven't we found any aliens yet?

Today's craft is an Awesome Alien. Choose a planet, think about what that planet is like, and create an alien with adaptations to live on that planet! How would your alien move around? What color is it? What does your alien eat/drink, and how do they do it?
