Science: We started with a whole class collaboration on a paragraph explaining the Nebular Theory. Here is the awesome final result...
Once there was a dust and gas cloud called a Nebula. The Nebula then started contracting because of the force of gravity and this process is called accretion. Then the nebula started to spin and spin due to the force of gravity. Thatâ€™s when the nebula started spinning really fast and it turned into a flat disc that is called the accretion disc. The middle of the accretion disc will become a protostar, later to become the solar system's star. Then the objects outside will become the planetesimals which will soon become the planets. That is how the Solar System was created, which started its journey through the Milky Way galaxy. It all happened 4.6 billion years ago, and that is how the Solar System was created.
Math: For each of the following 54 Review Questions, please refer to your conversion sheet and set up an equivalent ratio problem. Calculator OK!
1. This weekend, Mr. Dan walked 15 kilometers (km). How many miles (mi) did he walk?
2. Mrs. Emily paddled 1.6 km. How many centimeters (cm) did she paddle?
