The count down is on ! NASA plans to launch the Curiosity, a land rover. It will be launched on November 25 ,at 6:00 A.M. They just found out that there might have been life and water on Mars. Landing on Mars will be no easy feat. Curiosity is set to land in a huge crater. Iron-rich dust and rock give Mars a red surface and a pink sky.Curiosity is much bigger and more powerful than any other spacecraft that NASA has sent to Mars. Curiosity is about the size of a car. Curiosity is twice as long as Spirit or Opportunity,two rovers that landed on Mars in 2004. Spirit is a rover that went to Mars and was suposed to last for a short time but it has lasted for six years. Spirit is stuck in this quick sand ,so NASA is trying to find a way to help Spirit get out with a model rover.

Fun fact

The Romans called Mars the god of war because it's red color looked like blood. Watch the launch online or on NASA TV Drive your own rover on Earth and the Moon

Our week!!!! ;-) so far.....

On Monday it was raining and it was very very cold and we went to art. In art we drew pics of what is in AZ because AZ's b-day is coming up on Febuary 14th. When we came back from art we started this thing about what we imagine about the internet.
After lunch we watched a movie in the MPR because it was rainy day schedule. Then we packed up to leave.
Today we went to the computer lab and did IXL math. We came back to class to study for our map test . We reviewed our math review and then we went to lunch.
When we came back in, Mr. Miller read us a chapter of Dagger Quick by Brian Eames. Then we finished our internet pictures.

Can You Draw The Internet?

Pour Quoi Stories

Pour Quoi Stories are made up stories about how things or animals came to be, like for example,how the elephants got their trunks or how lava became hot and stuff like that. This is what we did,we first made a rough draft of the stories.Then we made our final copies. Then we typed it on the computer. After that we went on Google and we got to pick out a picture for our stories. So that's how we made our Pour Quoi Stories. The book of our stories will be in the school library.

You can read our Pour Quoi stories here.
