  1. 1. WHAT KILLED THE DINOSAURS? AND OTHER FACTS ABOUT SPACE Yumi Briones
  2. 2. What killed the Dinosaurs? A large asteroid might have fallen to earth, causing lots of chain reactions which killed the dinosaurs.  The ASTEROID was 10 km across!  It fell in Mexico….  It wasn’t only the asteroid that killed those giants. Lots of scary things were caused: earthquakes, tidal waves and huge clouds of dust, blocking the sky. We have an Internet link for you! If you’d like to know more, go to… http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/prehistoric_life/dinosa urs/chronology/65mya1.shtml Remember, this is only a theory. Scientists are still not so sure about it. 
  3. 3. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star… how I wonder what color you are There are more colors of stars to be found….  We have an Internet link for you! If you’d like to know more, go to http://www.kidsastronomy.com/stars.htm Blue is the hottest, blue- white the second hottest, white the third, then yellow, then orange, then red. Can you find some colored stars? Believe it or not, these are real stars up close!
  4. 4. Mother Very Early Made Jelly Sandwiches Under No Protest. You might be wondering about the odd sentence up on top.The first letter of each word is the first letter of a planet. It helps you remember the order of the planets. I have a book for you! It’s called “Thirty Days Has September: CoolWays to Remember Stuff” by Chris Stevens.
  5. 5. Space Travel: A story  This article was originally written by LeeAundra Temescu.There was this man working in NASA. He was going to fly a virtual space shuttle with his partner, Marya Glur. It was just a realistic simulation in a computer. He was really relaxed about it, and he was even drinking. Even during the simulation. Things were not pretty. He concluded that astronauts should be responsible in doing their job. Always always always. 
  6. 6. A GASSY moon!!!!!!!!!! Did you know the moon releases gas? People have seen hazy spots on the moon’s surface for a long time now. It’s only recently that someone suggested that eruptions of gas might have caused it! RADON emissions and those distortions perfectly matched.A lot of craters have been found around the moon’s farting area. 
  7. 7. MAN IN THE MOON Lastly, let’s talk about the “Man in the Moon”! Heard of it before? But do you know what it really is?There are a lot of CRATERS and what were once seas on the moon’s surface. With a little imagination, you can see a “Man in the Moon”!  Take a look at these pictures. This is what people think they see!
  8. 8. Glossary  CRATER: a bowl-shaped cavity/depression in a surface  RADON: A kind of element of gas  ASTEROID: A small planet
