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…
During this mission our little astronauts did some climbing activities for empowering their upper body muscles, their balance and flexibility. Every member of the crew climbed as high as they could on the bar wall of the school gym. The goal was to touch the higher bar and then climb back down. Some students climbed as high as they could so as to jump back down.
Finally, our students were trained in jumping. At first, they sat on the horizontal bar and then they were hanging from it until they jump down and stand still.The kids had real fun and many of them improved their self confidence..
Hello to all teams happily orbiting around!
This week, we had one more chance to get stunned, watching a video of Tim Peake performing spectacular rolls during his stay at the I.S.S. .
Rock n' roll, Spring roll, Astronaut roll... discussion proved we were fond enough of rolls to try them ourselves. However, here on Earth, the force of gravity (that so much loves messing with our pencils in classroom) makes rolling quite a demanding task!
But A-N.DR.O.M.E.D.A. team proved worth that D standing for "Daring" in our name. For, not only we did master the art of "Beginner", "Intermediate" and "Advanced" somersaults on the ground, but we also managed to accelerate the "Fitness Acceleration" part, including TWO hula-hoops for the ultimate challenge! Watch our "Roll-n-Roll-Over-Beethoven" video, where we get to co-star with Team Peake!
A great day here in Greece may be all about sun-but it can never trick training astronauts into forgetting their goal to reach for the moon!
Team Andromeda jumped and jumped around, training with their ropes, increasing their bone strength and improving heart and other muscle endurance.
