This month we will be learning a bunch of interesting things about our Planet Earth. We already know that Planet Earth is part of our solar system and that it revolves around the sun. We will see that Earth is a great sphere formed by rocks, soil and water.
All animals, humans, plants and living organism inhabit our beautiful planet.
The first week, we will see that the core of the earth is very hot due to the pressure that resides there. There is so much heat inside the earth that rocks melt and turn into lava. At this time lava searches for a way out through the volcanoes. Fun experiments will teach us what pressure is and how a volcanoes work.
Second week will be all about water! Seeing that our planet is made up mainly of water. Vast oceans, rivers and lakes are home for many living things that are a very important part of our ecosystem. Being very aware and conscious about that, we will learn to take extra care of our waters. Experiments will show us the different states of the water.
Third week, we will be talking about a very important element, that is “Air”. We will see how it is distributed in the atmosphere of our planet. It is difficult to get to know it because we cannot see it, we breathe it and it is all around us.
The last week of September ,we will learn about the soil. Soil is the place where we grow our food and many living things live there or need it to survive. We will go out to the park and get very messy(as usual) as we experiment, touch and mold the soil. Plants will be our main teacher, showing us their roots, how they absorb water and what they eat.
Prepare for an unforgettable experience!
Rhyme of the month:
La Tierra es redonda como un balón,
y da muchas vueltas alrededor del sol.
La Tierra es redonda como una naranja,
y en dar una vuelta todo el año tarda.
La Tierra da vueltas y quieta no está,
de tanto dar vueltas se va a marear.
Value of the month
Respect is when you speak to others with kind words and act with good manners. You follow the rules and do not talk back to your parents, teachers, or any adult. You appreciate that everyone is different in the way they look, act,or think. You must also respect yourself, if you do do, others will respect you.
