  • PLus vifs que la lumière ?

    Vitesse lumière - 1

    Bonjour,
    Notre professeur nous a confié aujourd'hui une mission plutôt compliquée : on devait attraper une règle le plus tard possible avant qu'elle ne touche le sol. Le plus souvent, on l'attrapait trop tôt ou elle tombait avant même que nous ayons eu le temps de la saisir au vol ! C'était trop bien !

  • Space Roll 'n Roll

    The Little Explorers enjoyed themselves by trying to perform spectacular rolls. This way they improved their balance and strengthened their back, abdominal and leg muscles.

  • Mission: Control

    The Little Explorers performed several balance exercises:
    • balance on one foot with their eyes closed,
    • balance on a soft surface,
    • balance on narrow surface.

  • Space Roll 'n Roll

    The Little Astronauts had fun as they imitated astronauts being upside down and making their own body roll. They performed a series of somersaults on the ground to improve their body coordination, flexibility and muscle strength.

  • Mission: Control

    The Little Astronauts improved their balance performing the following activities:
    • They tried to balance, raising one foot up behind them and then in front without falling for at least 30 seconds.
    • They counted the seconds they could stand on one foot while throwing a ball against the wall.
    • They were divided into groups of 6 players and formed circles. They tried to balance on one foot while gently tossing a gym ball to a player across them. If a player lost balance and both feet touched the floor, he or she hopped on one foot around the outside of the circle before rejoining the game.

  • Touchdown Charlie: Space Turtles trainieren American Football mit den Profis!

    Das war richtig cool!!! Die Space Turtles konnten das Eintreffen von "Lufti" und "Widi" der American Footballmannschaft Generali Invaders aus St. Pölten kaum erwarten! Endlich war es soweit: gemeinsam mit der Integrationsklasse erlebten die Turtles zwei lustige Trainingsstunden mit den Spielern. Nach einem gelungenen, schweißtreibenden Warm up teilten die Profis die Kids in zwei Gruppen. Die eine Gruppe lernte mit Hilfe eines "Dummies" das Umwerfen des Gegners = "Tackling" und den "Ballentzug" während sich die andere Gruppe mit der richtigen Wurf- und Fangtechnik auseinandersetzte. Danach durfte das von den Spielern erfundene Footballspiel "Invaders Ball" nicht fehlen! Das war eine Gaudi! Glupschi und Astro Charlie durften nicht fehlen und waren wie immer "live" dabei! Das Highlight kam zum Schluss. Alle Turtles und auch die Kinder aus der Parallelklasse durften die Dresses der Kindermannschaft anprobieren!!!

  • Abenteuerturnsaal

    Unsere Lehrerinnen bauten im Turnsaal einen Abenteuerparcours auf. Dabei waren verschiedenen Übungen, die wir im Rahmen unserer Mission X bereits absolviert haben, zum Beispiel klettern, balancieren, Ball werfen,...

    Wir merken richtig, wie wir uns durch unser Training verbessern und hatten wirklich großen Spaß im Abenteuerturnsaal...!

  • Kraft- und Koordinationstraining mit Bällen

    Für die Kräftigungsübungen zur verringerten Schwerkraft übten wir mit Medizinbällen. Die Übungen waren ziemlich anstrengend, wir mussten mit den Bällen springen und laufen. Als Abschluss der Turnstunde spielten wir aber ein wirklich lustiges Spiel, in dem wir uns den Ball im Kreis zurollen mussten. Auf dem Video sieht und hört man, wie viel Spaß wir dabei hatten...

  • Vorbereitung auf die Fahrradprüfung

    Um die Übungen für die Mission "Schwingt euch auf euer Weltraumfahrrad" sicher durchführen zu können (und auch unabhängig von der Mission X alleine Rad fahren zu dürfen), bereiten wir uns auf die Fahrradprüfung vor.

    Wir waren dazu im Verkehrsgarten im Wiener Prater und durften dort mit Fahrrädern die unterschiedlichsten Situationen im Straßenverkehr kennenlernen. Außerdem lernten wir auch die Verkehrszeichen mit ihren Bedeutungen, wann man einen Radweg benutzen muss usw. ... Und natürlich gab es auch praktische Übungen, ihr seht ein paar Eindrücke davon auf den Fotos...

    So haben wir unsere Weltraumfahrrad-Übungen gleich im Verkehrspark absolviert!

  • Jump to the Moon

    The Little Explorers performed rope jump training (both static and moving), in order to increase bone strength, cardiovascular and muscle endurance.

  • Crew strength training

    The Little Explorers performed body-weight squats and push-ups to develop upper and lower body strength. In addition, they recorded observations and improvements regarding their strength training and they identified their exercised muscles by muscle soreness.

  • Planet you go, gravity you find!

    Heute nutzten die Space Turtles das frühlingshafte Wetter, um die Mission „Andere Planeten, andere Schwerkraft“ im Freien durchzuführen. Zuerst lernten wir mit Hilfe des Montessori-Materials unser Sonnensystem und die dazugehörigen Planeten und alles Wissenswerte über sie kennen. Um gleichzeitig auch Bewegung einzubauen und um wieder einmal den Vestibulationssinn zu trainieren, durften die Turtles nach Zuordnung der Kärtchen , diesen die aufblasbaren Planeten dazulegen - und das Ganze im „Kübelgang“. Konzentration war angesagt!

  • Cycling to the moon!

    Paula on her Space Bike!

    Here's Powerful Paula on her Space Bicycle pedalling around Trento!

    Did you know that Trento is a space city? Yeah, that's right! We are closer to space than we are to the sea!
    Do you live in a space city too??

    Ciao from the Italian Space Cadets!

  • Hoher Besuch im Hause Klenaugasse

    Heute durften die Eulonauten 2 Stunden gemeinsam mit Peter Habison verbringen.
    Um 8 Uhr gings im Turnsaal los - wir gaben wie immer unser BESTES!!

    Danach - zurück in der KLasse - hatten wir viele viele Fragen und präsentierten auch ganz ganz stolz alles von uns bereits geschafftes / gelerntes / ....
    Zum Abschluss gab es ein Gruppenfoto und auch unser PLakat haben wir ganz stolz neben die Tafel in der KLasse aufgehängt!

  • Taste in space!

    Mit Spannung gingen die Space Turtles an das Thema „Wie schmeckt es im All“ heran. Als sie in ihrer Lesenacht den vorbereiteten Essraum betraten, stieg die Spannung. Die Turtles gingen in Zweiergruppen zusammen und stellten sich zu den Bechern, Augenbinden, Aufziehspritzen, Pipetten und Löffeln. Das Kind, dem die Augenbinde umgebunden wurde, hielt sich die Nase zu und wurde vom Partner mit Proben „gefüttert“. Dann versuchten die Kinder, die Geschmacksrichtungen zu unterscheiden, was ihnen auch sehr gut gelang. Danach wurde getauscht und der Partner durfte die Proben versuchen. Zuerst führten die Turtles die Übung mit Getränken, die vorgeschrieben waren und von unserer gelernten Köchin und Kräuterpädagogin Andrea Kieninger vorbereitetet wurden, durch. Zur Neutralisierung des Geschmackes spülten die Kinder immer wieder den Mund mit Wasser.

  • Taste in Space and Lift off!

    Vi har arbejdet med opgaverne "Smag i rummet" og trænet muskler og kondition med "Peake Lift off".
    Vores rumstationer males færdige. Vi vil indrette et "Space-rum" med rumstationer i loftet, plancher på vægge og 3 D solsystemer, som vi har lavet i undervisningen i natur/teknologi og billedkunst. I de næste par uger, skal vi holde øje med vores rum-have eksperimenter og udføre de sidste opgaver på niveau 3!

    We have done the tasks "Taste in Space" and trained muscles and fitness with "Peake Lift off". Our space stations are painted. We will set up a "Space- room" with the pupil´s space stations hanging from the ceiling, wall posters and 3 D solar systems, which we have done in science and visual art subjects. In the next couple of weeks, we shall keep an eye on our space-garden experiments and perform the last level 3 tasks!

  • Die Weltraum-Mäuse "erlesen" sich neue Informationen ...

    ... über den Weltraum und all das, was darin so herumfliegt :-)
    Dabei verblüfft uns LehrerInnen immer wieder, was sich die Kids schon so alles gemerkt haben von den bisherigen "Wissenserwerbs"-Stationen, -Missionen oder -Filmen

  • Stok-o-nauten, week 3

    En weer een week volop bezig geweest met Missie X, kijk maar!

  • Hoch, hoch klettern wir..

    und springen mutig hinunter.
    Mit frischer Energie aus den Osterferien starteten die >raketeneulen< gleich mit einer Kletterstunde. Ziemlich anstrengend! Auch die Seile und Stangen meisterten die Eulen. Auf der Sprossenwand kletterten wir flink rauf, rüber, runter, rauf.. und sprangen schließlich wieder hinunter.

    Der Vulkan kann kommen! Wir sind bereit!

  • From the Dolomites to the Moon on a...bike!

    Laraib on her space cycle!

    Look at those astronauts in training go!

    Laraib and Giorgio made the Italian Space Cadets proud by jumping on their bikes and riding here, there and everywhere!
    Cycling is a great way to keep fit and enjoy being outdoors and close to nature!
    Astronauts cycle in space too to improve the fitness and muscle tone.

    Hey everybody! Get on your space cycles!

    Look at Giorgio go! Giorgio on his space cycle!

  • Stärkung der Kernmuskulatur

    Erholt von den Osterferien absolvierten die SMART BRAINS heute die Mission "Weltraumkraft in eurem Körper".
    Hier wurde nicht nur die Muskulatur gestärkt, sondern auch Teamfähigkeit im Wettbewerb geweckt. Die SMART BRAINS motivierten sich gegenseitig, um immer mehr "Commander-Crunches" zu schaffen.

  • Run 7A, Run!

    Het rennen was vermoeiend maar het was wel leuk sommige deden het beter dan de andere .Bijna iedereen deed 4 rondjes maar sommige iets minder. maar dat maakt niet veel uit het gaat er om dat je het probeert en drie is al best veel ,maar sommige deden het 100 meter snel en dan 100 langzaam dat was een andere opdracht. Niet iedereen deed dat en sommige hadden een helm op een astronaut helm maar die werd beslagen en dat was niet fijn.

  • CT1- 9TH PRIMARY SCHOOL OF LEVADIA

    Coming towards the end our young astronauts this time had to choose 4 activities. They selected four activities to do as quickly as they could, while maintaining proper form. The children after choosing 4 activities, those they liked best (Βase Station Walkback - Planet You Go, Gravity You Find – Jump to the Moon – Crew Strength Training), they managed to do them in very short time. All in all, the preparation to be an astronaut is very tiring ; but the procedure is very pleasant and fun.

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia- Learning About Planets ...

    Simultaneously with the activities for strengthening the small crew astronauts of 9th Primary School Levadia informed about planets and through a fun game understood the existence of other planets in space ..

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia- Constructing our own missiles ...

    Little astronauts of 9th Primary School Livadia with good mood and a lot of joy succeeded and created their own missiles..Fantasy and recyclable materials were enough to create their own rockets just as they had imagined !!

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia- Touchdown Charlie

    This week our young astronauts organized a football match combining sports with entertainment. The kids enjoyed a lot and through football understood that good cooperation between members of a group can bring the desired result ..

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia - IS THERE LIFE OUT THERE...???

    The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia gathered in the computer room and looked for information about our solar system. They were divided in teams and gathered ifo -such as which planet is closer to Earth and which is further away, what’s the distance between them, etc- and then proceeded to the creation of planets as they imagined them. They used colorful plasticines and in the end, each team made their own U.F.O.s (from paper plates) and gave answer to the question of life existence out there…

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia- Do a Spacewalk

    This week our young astronauts did the “bear crawl” and “crab walk”. The goal was to strengthen their muscles and improve the coordination of their upper and lower body parts.

  • The small astronauts of the 9th elementary school of Levadia- Crew Assembly

    This mission’s purpose was to do a puzzle (50 pieces) fast and correct so that the children would understand the importance of hand-eye coordination as well as practicing their communication and problem solving skills.
    Our young astronauts – divided in teams –succeeded in doing the puzzle really fast. There was a team spirit and the gloves weren’t a problem for the completion of the puzzle. Each team managed to cut down the time significantly when they tried to do the puzzle for a second time (they found it easier)…In the end, all the teams compared their times and their next challenge was to do a puzzle of 100 pieces! Finally all crew members improved their skills and their hand-eye coordination by achieving a fast and easy object assembling.

  • Frohe Ostern! ...

    Auch den Osterhasen haben die Eulonauten so richtig in den Bann gezogen.
    Geschenkt hat er ihnen unter anderem heuer ein AstronomieBuch und ein WeltallMagazin und eine Raumschifflampe!

    FROHE OSTERN!!

  • Doekjes

    Vandaag hebben we de slagroomchallenge in de klas gedaan. We komen met onze slagroomtoet in het jaarboek. Het schoonmaken van de gezichten ging net zoals in het ISS: met babydoekjes. Wash yourself like an astronaut!

  • Space Rocket Launch

    We have liftoff!!!!
    Mrs Howling will share her pictures and the 'out-of-this-world' experience when she returns.
    SpaceX was successfully launched yesterday.
    A care package with more than 5,800 pounds of supplies from Earth is on its way to the International Space Station aboard a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft. The company’s 14th commercial cargo mission to resupply the space station began at 4:30 p.m. EDT with liftoff aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
    The Dragon spacecraft now is in orbit with its solar arrays deployed and providing power.

  • Space Rocket Launch

    All ready and weather 80% go

  • Space Rocket Launch

    Countdown has begun !!!!!

  • Space Rocket Launch

    One of our teachers is in Orlando with her family and they are all very excited to go to Kennedy Space Centre to watch the SpaceX rocket launch. Hopefully, if its not too cloudy,pictures of the launch will be shared here ASAP.
    Weather report is good at the moment. Binoculars ready Mrs Howling !

  • A Very Space-y Birthday

    Remember when Nasa astronauts held a pizza party on the International Space Station ? It looked like a lot of fun... It was a historic event in space, because the International Space Station has hosted it's first ever pizza party! And all this fun. thanks to the Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli. Since space history is written even by... amazing parties, we had our own special space party,celebrating our teacher's birthday, making fun space decorations and a delicious astro-cake !

  • A different kind of football...

    Μany sports relate to astronaut training? On the surface, preparing to play a game of football may not seem similar to astronaut preparations in that the sport of football is very fast-paced with high amounts of bodily contact. However, if we look a bit deeper into both, we can find some similarities. Playing sports requires teamwork and preparation. Teammates must work together. In space, astronauts also must react to new situations as a team. Their teamwork is imperative to the success of a mission, and often such teamwork ensures the safety of the crew. In space, astronauts float and have very small loads on their bodies. Their bodies would lose a significant amount of muscle and bone, so astronauts exercise on the International Space Station (ISS) for about two hours per day. It is crucial to their health to exercise with heavy loads, just as football players must lift weights After a game, athletes have tired muscles and must take care to let their bodies recover.

  • Astro-Pi Mission Zero

    Our class contributed to the daily routine of the International Space Station by displaying our own personal message and the ambient air temperature on the Astro Pi. Mission Zero was launched by ESA Astronaut Paolo Nespoli alongside Mission Space Lab as part of the 2017-2018 European Astro Pi Challenge. For Mission Zero, over the past months our teams have been using the Astro Pi SenseHat emulator and have learnt to use the Python programming language in order to write and send code onto Astro Pi Ed and Astro Pi Izzy on the ISS. The codes were uplinked to the ISS and, from January until the end of February 2018 and they each run for 30 seconds. The astronauts on the ISS had the chance to read the personalised greetings written by the teams as well as the temperature readings in the space station programmed by the pupils and measured by the Astro Pi.

  • Walking at the footsteps of the giants

    When exploring the moon or Mars, astronauts will complete many physical tasks such as setting up science experiments and power systems around the base and collecting rock samples. They will also walk or drive the rover long distances in order to explore the surface. If their rover breaks down, they must be able to walk up to a distance of 10 km back to their base station. Astronauts are examined by research scientists in NASA’s Cardiovascular Laboratory and they train with NASA strength and conditioning specialists to strengthen their lungs, hearts and other muscles before their mission. This helps NASA to know the crew member is physically prepared to complete their mission tasks and to perform a walk-back, if necessary. In this activity we performed a walk in the Olympic Athletic Center of Athens "Spiros Louis" , progressing to 1600 m to improve lung,heart, and other muscle endurance

  • Everybody, play ball !

    Mass is the amount of matter an object is made of. It is always the same, but its weight changes depending where or on which planet it is. In this activity performed the same exercise with balls of different weights, as if we were in different gravitational onditions. We played with different kinds of balls to strengthen our arm and torso muscles and improve our coordination. As a space explorers of the future, are now prepared to deal with different gravity environments in our galaxy!

  • Astro-Course

    Astronauts practice strength and agility through training exercises designed by NASA Astronaut Strength, Conditioning & Rehabilitation Specialists (ASCR). These fitness specialists conduct an annual fitness test, design individual exercise programs, and provide one-on-one pre-flight and post-flight conditioning activities for the astronauts. The agility we use every day on Earth is different from the agility used in space. Being in space over a period of time can affect
    astronaut’s agility. This is observed once the astronauts return to Earth. Due to the astronauts living in microgravity environment and not using their muscles as they do on Earth, their muscles weaken. After they return from a long duration mission, astronauts work with ASCRs to restore and maintain agility as before their spaceflight mission.

  • Soccer time

    Astronauts know that it is important to safely strengthen their core muscles in order to protect themselves from injury. During our soccer game we :
    ...breathe normal throughout these physical activities
    ...concentrate on the core muscles
    ...move carefully until you become acquainted with the movement.
    ...stop immediately if you experience any pain or discomfort.
    ...avoid uneven surfaces playing soccer on a soft but firm surface.
