Year 5 Scientists!

Year 5 have become scientists today! They received an exciting letter from a professor who believes the Earth is flat! After a few experiments and a little research, Year 5 were able to prove otherwise. Using a globe and a car, they were able to prove that the Earth must be spherical due to the fact that the bottom of the car disappears first as it goes around the world. If the Earth was flat, the car would just appear smaller as it travels further away! Great work Year 5!
