Westlund’s Research Team 2013 Lots of facts about the solar system, bees, lake layers, seasons, and ecology
2 Did you know………… Earths orbit is in an oval Foxes turn white in winter to stay safe. They turn red in summer to stay safe too. Seasons In New York State, the longest period of daylight occurs during June.
1 I am learning about space, these are things I have learned about so far. Venuses atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide which is made up of a green house gas that traps the sun’s heat and raises it up to 900 degrees. The sun is in the center, its gravity binds the solar system together. Did you know mars is a baring planet with striking geographic features? Milky way formed about 4 and a half billion years ago when gas and clouds collapsed into a dense mass. The mass began to spin and flatten into a disc. Leftover dust and gas continue to whirl around the sun. The closest planet to the sun is Mercury; a relatively small planet known for its extreme temperature. Mercury’s temperatures can reach up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit minus 300 or so at night. By: Braydon Gilbert
3 Fun Fact: A sugar maple trees leaf colors are either orange or red in the Fall. A leaf has 5 different parts: A tip, veins, stem, axil, and a blade.
4 The tilt of the Earth on its axis makes nighttime very long in Alaska in the winter. Did you know that the Earth has 5 layers in it? -crust -outer mantle -inner mantle -core Crust: You can get pretty warm or cold Outer Mantle: It is like 150 degrees down here! Inner Mantle: Now I am burning my skin in this 500 degrees pot! Core: I am pieces of ashes and I cant feel the temperature

Check Science Fact Sun is another word for star. Gravity is a force that pulls people toward the center of the earth. The earth is spinning every 24 hours, which results in one rotation. In New York State, the longest period of daylight occurs during June. It takes about 28 days for the moon to fully orbit around the Earth. The Sun is at the center of our solar system. Star is another word for sun. Seven rotations of the earth best describes one week on earth. The seasons on the earth are determined by the tilt of the Earth on its axis. The Earth circles the sun one time each year. Ancient sailors used the constellations as guides to help them find their way across the sea because their movements across the sky can be predicted. The tilt of the Earth on its axis makes nighttime very long in Alaska in the winter.
