Hi all,

As I have discussed with the girls in class, our final project in 2nd Class will be based on the Solar System. We have recently learned all about Space and the Solar System in our SESE lessons and the girls have been really intrigued to find out more information and facts!

Title: The Solar System

Due: Wednesday 26th June

Length: Minimum 2 pages in their scrapbooks

The girls should include interesting facts, pictures, diagrams and information about the Solar System as a whole. They can add some information about one planet that they are most interested in also, if they wish.

The local library is a brilliant resource to the girls and they should be able to find some books there, to help them with their projects.

Below is a list of some websites which you may find useful when researching the topic. Adult supervision is very important when the children are researching online.
