    In June, our monthly theme is Outer Space.

    Based on the alphabet, can you think of things we can find in outer space? It could be planets, stars, galaxies, etc. With so many stars, I think we can rely on Google to help narrow them down!

    Let’s go!

    Because I want more people to jump in the game, I will ask to NOT post two consecutive answers (unless there is a 24 hour period without answer since it could mean we are stuck)

    (remember: only ONE answer per letter, to give us more options for seconds if we get to that point)

    K = Kinetic energy  Kinetic energy is the energy that an object has because of its motion.

    As a physical educator I studied Kinesology…the science of human motion. So…kinetic energy is the planet/star’s energy created by it motion.
