Largest Meteorite in the World

Last Friday I subbed in a fifth grade science class. As we read the textbook section on meteorites, I saw found this sentence: "The largest meteorite ever found is located in the African country of Namibia." I was able to tell the kids that I have been there and seen it! We visited the Hoba Meteorite in 2009 when we traveled to Tsumeb, Namibia, to visit fellow missionaries John and Martie D'Alton. The fifth graders were impressed. As a matter of fact, we were too. It's a pretty incredible sight.
