Solar System Diaramas

During the last week of Term 2 we created some solar system diaramas.
It took four days.
First we painted the inside of shoe boxes black to look like deep space.


 While the paint was wet we sprinkled glitter to look like stars.


Next we made our planets out of papier mache.




The next day, after the planets had dried, we painted them.




The sun needs to be much bigger than the planets so we made it out of corrugated cardboard.

Planets drying.

Finally we glued the planets into position.





Some people added rockets and astronauts and cut out a photo of their faces to look out of the window or face mask.

Indian Ink

Look at our cool winter trees.
We dropped blobs of Indian ink onto our paper then blew it through a straw to create  bare witchy looking trees.
