Did you see the ISS go over this week? I have seen it this week on 3 different nights! If you missed it, here is the video from Thursday night, June 4th, going over us so you know what to look for next time! Our next chance to see the ISS over Tahoe isn't until June 26 at 5:11 am - but I will try to post over the summer when you can look for it. You can look it up yourself at spotthestation.nasa.gov .
How about "driving" on the Moon? Try Google Moon! (Like Google Earth, only lunar!)

This week is EASY. All you need to do is choose ONE project from any of the other weeks to:
1) do if you haven't done that one yet
2) finish if there is something left to do
3) do over again or differently if it was your favorite!
Also - Check in on the Week 12 Padlet and tell me "How are you NOW?"
- How are you?
- What cool things will you do this summer?
- What are you looking forward to?
