Galaxies

Today we learned about Galaxies. There are three different types of galaxies. spiral, elliptical and irregular. Our galaxy, 'The Milky Way' is a spiral galaxy. If the Earth were in an elliptical galaxy, we would not have night. It would be bright, both day and night!

Here is what spiral galaxies look like.

 Here are examples of elliptical galaxies.

Lastly, If a galaxy doesn't fit into the other two categories. It is an irregular galaxy.

After learning about the different types of galaxies, we made our own! First, we got a coffee filter and decorated it with neat designs using markers. Then we dropped water on it and watched the colors blend together. Our galaxies were all unique!


Once our galaxies were finished drying, we added them to our universe board and gave them all names!





Here is our awesome universe! We had fun creating this neat illustration!
