Mr. Hookstra's 4th grade Science Classes

 Story image 1_0

Mr. Hookstra's 4th grade science classes recently finished a unit on The Earth, Moon, and Planets.  Students learned how the tilt of earth on its' axis affect the seasons on earth.   All students charted the moon phases for an entire month.  It was during this study in which students had the opportunity to observe the unique Blue Blood Super Moon.  Please see the attached series of photos taken by one 4th grade student.  


Students also studied the differences between the inner planets and outer planets of our solar system.  Each student chose a planet to research.  Upon completion of their research, students also created a multimedia presentation using Buncee in collaboration with tech support from Mrs. Weyer.  Students did an excellent job in presenting their findings.  Please view the proud works of several students efforts in learning about planets in our solar system.
