As part of their earth and space systems unit, fifth-graders at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School are learning about the planet and its different spheres. Using a flashlight, students had a lesson on the earth, sun and stars to determine brightness and the stars’ distance from the sun. Students also worked on presentations about the four spheres – geosphere, biosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere – and explained the different parts of the system and how it interacts with other systems.
