Payne is SO into space right now with his new rocket from Christmas and new book from Gotcha Day
so I thought it was the perfect Fun day.
I gathered our books, art materials, and science materials~
then used household materials to act out how the earth revolves and rotates as well as the moon.
They were quite excited to help BE the sun, earth, and moon.
Payne wanted to bring his rocket and share all things he knew about space travel.
We also read lots of things in his new space book~
The inside circle of a plate was cut for the earth and we painted it.
We punched circles for the moon phases and cut yellow to represent the light shining onto them~
and painted it with blue and green milk paint making Earth Toast~
then dropped yellow food coloring into milk to make Sun Milk~
I called each one over with their journals to ask what they knew about each thing~
They spoke and I wrote.
I was pretty impressed with what they all shared.
The cool thing about today was even though it was a repeat for EK/SJ,
they were excited to share their prior knowledge
helping the younger kids gain new information.
It was a win win and super fun in the process!!!
