We can see it by using iron powder and magnets.
Note: Use magnets and iron powder
Note: Vulcanos spit that inner melted materials to the surface of Earth
The Sun, sometines has storms and particles (debris) is launched towards earth and others with the
Note: Analogy with water and storm
Magnetic field is Earth’s shield against solar wind.
Note: Analogy with umbrella

Note: When the moon is ‘C’-shaped, it’s in Waning phase.
Sometimes, the Moon is between Earth and Sun - Eclipses can be total or partial
Note: Make a point on Moon round shape while it puts between Earth and Sun
Rockets fight againsts the other Earth: ‘gravity’
Moon’s gravity causes tides on Earth
In order to escape Earth, speed must be very high (40.280 km/h).
Rockets are made in ‘sections’ that can be dropped to be lighter and use less energy to lift off.
