Sunita In Space NCERT Class 5
11. Sunita in Space
Straight from the heart
What do you think the earth looks like? Make a drawing of the earth in your notebook. On your drawing show where you are. Take a look at your friends’ drawings too
What is our earth really like?
Uzaira and Shahmir are playing with the globe. While they play they are talking to each other.
Uzaira: Do you know that Sunita Williams is visiting our school tomorrow? I have heard that she has spent more than six months in space.
Shahmir: (looking at the globe) Hmm... look here is America, Africa. Hey, where is space?
Uzaira: The sky, stars, sun and moon, they are all in space.
Shahmir: Yes, I know. Sunita Williams went in a spaceship. I saw on TV that she could see the earth from there.
Uzaira: Yes, from there the earth looked like this globe.
Shahmir: If our earth looks like this globe, then where are we? (Uzaira takes a pen and places it on the globe.)
Uzaira : Here we are. This is India.
Shahmir: If we were here like this, we would all fall off. I think we must be inside the globe
Uzaira: If we are inside, then where is the sky, the sun, the moon and the stars? We must be on the globe. And all the seas and oceans must also be on the globe.
Shahmir: (pointing towards the lower part of the globe) You mean to say that no one stays here?
Uzaira: People live here too. Brazil and Argentina are here.
Shahmir: Are the people there standing upside down? Why don't these people fall off?
Uzaira: Yes, it looks strange, isn’t it? And this blue part must be the sea. Why doesn’t the sea water fall off
What do you think?
- If the earth is round like a globe, how is it that we do not fall off?
- Do the people in Argentina stand upside down?
