space rocks BTN

This is the episode space rocks

Have you ever wondered what is up in our solar system not including planets? There are things like asteroid and meteors. Is it actually possible that there could be another sun? Asteroid are usually made from rock and metal, 10,000 of them are in the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter. So is there a chance that an asteroid could smash into earth or even Australia? Meteors are a smaller asteroid millions of them enter the earths atmosphere  every day. This has furthered my understanding about space rocks.

our solar system

Our solar system is made out of 8 planets and several dwarf planets. These are the 8 planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. How did scientists find out about all these planets? The 8 planets orbit around the sun (sol is the scientific name) because of a gravitational pull the sun has. Other things in our solar system orbit around the sun as well as the planets. I want to know if there is life on other planets that’s not on earth? Some planets have moons like how earth has a moon that is called Luna. Earth only has 1 but other planets have more like Jupiter has 67 moons. From watching this video i understood more about how our solar system works and more about the planets.

space video reflection

There where manly 3 places that contributed to astronomy and one of them was the Babylonians. Babylon is a city state near modern Baghdad. They were very advanced in astronomy for their day had a system of writing so that the could record of massive volume of astronomical observations form witch they created mathematical models. they made calendars could be used to time important tings around Babylonia. How did they make this system and did it take a long time? The Maya’s are a group of mesoamerican Indians. Unfortunately little knowledge about the Maya’s use of astronomy exists because there texts where burnt by Spanish. why would the Spanish burn there texts? The Ancient Greeks a lot of knowledge came from Hipparchus an Ancient Greek mathematician. He was known as the father of trigonometry and a great astronomer. I now understand the 3 main contributes to astronomy.

personal goals reflection

Some of my personal goals I have had previously are to get better at my spelling, writing better blog posts and working on my multiplication. I have worked on my blog post being more in dept and easier to understand. I think that has been a success! I believe that with the homework we get it is giving me more and more opportunity’s to have worked towards my goal. I think that I sill need to have spelling as one of my goals because I have worked on it but I am still having a bite of trouble. Spelling is probably one of my weakest points but I have found some strategy that will help me like compare with other spelling patterns, thinking about syllables and just having a go. I think that I am ok with my multiplication and I could probably move on to something that we will be learning this term.

Some of the goals I think I should have other than spelling is try to learn and be confident about BIDMAS. I have heard of it before but I don’t exactly know what it is. I think that because we are learning a bit about it this term it will help me achieve my goal. I also need to work on my understanding of figurative language. I know a bit about it but I won’t to learn more and maybe even use it in my writing. i hope that i will be able to complete by the end of this year.
