If you need some ideas for our inquiry, check our Brain POP Jr.

I found a Mars and an International Space station section with a video, quiz, challenge, make a map and more.

It is an app on the iPads but is also accessible on other devices (see links).

(Thanks Mark for sharing the app in the PLC leader meeting.)

Great article in yesterday's herald showing pictures of NZ from Space and the International Space Station. Would be a great discussion point, writing prompt and link to our inquiry.
