Celestial Pen Pals
Here’s what we decided:
Elena: A note, from the tucker room! Do you think we should write them back?
Elle: Let’s do it about the moon! Then can we do one about the sea?
Elena: What would you say to them about the moon?
Lochie: uh, uh the moon is covered in dust
George: It’s burning hot
Elle: No, its cooling
Lochie: No, but, no but the moon catches the sun’s um hot… so it’s hot
Elena: So here we have a disagreement, Elle thinks the moon is cool and Lochie thinks the moon is hot
Jack: I think the moon would be hot
CC: I think the moon would be hot
Marley: ehhh I think the moon is gonna be cold
Elena: Why do you think the moon is hot/cold?
Lochie: uhh because it’s collecting the sun’s hotness
Jack: and that’s also why I think it’s hot
Today, we took time to revisit our thoughts and draft a response on the whiteboard. Following our earlier discussion, we decided to share more facts about the moon.
Some friends took opportunities later in the day to do additional research to add to the letter. We can look through more space books to get ideas! - Lochie. Yeah, let’s do this one!- George
Elle also “really wanted to make Tucker laugh” so she wanted to include the following:
The moon is covered in paint! And Jack added his own “What if the moon is covered in popcorn!”
We can’t wait for Tucker’s response!
