Fish by L.S. Matthews

The book Fish by L.S. Matthews wasn’t bad but could be better. I liked how it was in first person text. It gave the book from a certain and interesting point of view. It also shows experiences from real life. That is why I rate the book…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars!

VSSEC

Yesterday we went VSSEC (Victorian Sience Space Education Centre) to learn about space. We got to put pretend space suits on. Josh and I extracted the DNA from 1/2 a cup of peas. They were white and stringy. When we looked at them under the microscope, it moved in a swaying motion. We also got to make dancing robots out of a CD, paper clips, wires, battery, battery holder, masking tape and double-sided tape. We also got to me in mission control and do all the things mission controllers could do.
