Nuacht Nioclais-3rd Class Trip to the Blackrock Observatory

Last month, the three 3rd classes visited the Blackrock Observatory and it was really great. Our teacher’s name for the day was Frances. Frances made the inside of a real comet and we made paper comets with straws and ribbons. We played `Comet Chaser’ twice. I learned lots about comets and played a quiz and voted with remote controls. For the real comet we mixed water and dry ice, dirt, salt and ammonia. It was really interesting at Blackrock Observatory.
