Moon Craters

By Bori

Sisters at PCS Joslin experimented with creating craters on the Moon!  The girls searched vocabulary words and then moved into creating craters using simple household materials.  Bori, the instructor, replicated the surface of the moon with flour and cocoa powder.  Students had a blast dropping rocks into the trays and watched as craters formed in their replica of the moon.   They compiled and compared data from their experiments and participated in a whole group discussion.  The girls had fun participating in this unique, creative experiment.
