We did an experiment today to see how far the moon is from the earth. This involved us first of all finding the size of the moon compared to earth. We were surprised to learn that the moon is 1 quarter the size of the earth and we used a balloon to show this in comparison to our globe.
We then had to look at scales and working to a scale. We learned loads of key skills. We learned all about how far the moon is away from earth. We were surprised to see how far apart they are! We even had to go out to the yard to show fully how far they are apart. It was great fun and very interesting.
