Preschool ~ Solar System
We have been reading lots of books about the solar system, including:
- There's no place like Space (The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library)
- Our Home Planet Earth by Nancy Loewen
- Stories of the Sun: The Planets by Clint Twist
- The Sun by Ron Miller
We explored several space related sites on the internet. Some of our favorites are: Kids Astronomy and NASA Kids.
We also took a field trip to the Kids Discovery Center. Lots of fun!
We worked on different patterns with our little magnets. After a while, Smiley turned the patterns into a race track. The boy loves anything car-related :)
We did different activities with our animal critters. We sorted them by size and shape and made different patterns with them.
