Extreme Environments: Visit to the Planetarium

Last week we ventured into the extreme environment of space at the H.R. Macmillan Space Centre in Vancouver.
We were part of an interactive presentation on what makes space a dangerous place for humans.
Then we got to try on a protective space suit ....
and try out some of the things astronauts experience in space.
We were proud to learn about some of the Canadians who have participated in missions to space. 
Another fun co-op adventure!

Extreme Environments & Living Things

In co-op this week we spent some time reviewing what an extreme environment is ...
and then played a memory game to review the characteristics of the five kingdoms of living things.
