This term our science unit is focused on space and the Luna system. Before I started this science unit I didn’t even know what the Luna system was the Luna system is focused on the Moon the Earth and the Sun and how we get day and night. Something else that we have focused on is shadows and the way light travels.
Something that I have learnt about each of those things is that. 1. The way that the Luna system works is that the Moon orbits the Earth while the Earth orbits the Sun. 2. S shadow is created when light is hitting one person or something but because light only travels straight it goes around something then you can see your shadow because you are blocking the sun from hitting the ground. 3. Light only travels straight from what ever angle it is on.
The thing that I found interesting was when I found out what a shadow was. I also had no idea how the Luna system works. I also found it interesting how light travels straight because even when it is in an angle because I always thought that if light is on an angle it would bend.
I didn’t even know that the Moon is 340,400km away from the Earth.
Sometching that I would like to find out is what is the exact size of the entire universe.
what has been the most interesting thing that you have learnt during science?
