LEX@R Students Respond to God’s Creation with Psalms

Bubble Neblua (NGC 7635)

Our learning extension students have recently been working on writing psalms as a response to God’s astronomical creation. Here are three of them:

Mighty creator,
My position too small to comprehend
How you made the earth from end to end.
I look to the stars, the planets, the sun
And see you shining out to me
You are continuously the Lord, never are you not.
You creations are great, praise you I can’t stop.
Every breath I breathe is meant for you,
Mighty Creator, praise you…

Given the popularity of the competition – and the quality of the entries – we will definitely run the competition again in 2017.…

Rube Goldberg and the LEX@R Kids

Who is Rube Goldberg, you may ask? Goldberg was a cartoonist in the 1930s and 40s, famous for “inventing” complicated machines designed to do extremely simple tasks. His cartoon drawings were popular in newspapers and the game Mousetrap is a good example of a Rube Goldberg machine.

Year 5-6 Learning Extension (LEX@R) students have been learning about work and simple machines. We have examined God’s plan for work, as well as work we consider to be “hard”. Students are designing a parent survey to ask them about work they do and how machines have made…
