My kiddos have always been into the solar system and we have tons of great books, a lot of them pop-up and 3D, so they are already quite familiar with the basics of the planets. So today, we spent some time working on more in depth info on each of the planets and through a great project, worked on fine motor skills and writing.
After morning circle and book work, we chowed on some cheesy “moons” and then built our cosmic rocket fueled by baking soda and vinegar!
It was then time to start on our My Planets Book. I purchased this awesome download for $2 from Teachers Pay Teachers and then you simply need markers, colored card stock or construction paper, and some great resources with factual information (books, web).
It took quite some time and is probably more easily done in two days but boy were they SO proud of it and I love how it collapses for easier storage!
It was another great school day!
