Moon and Constellations

Some friends came over on Friday to finish up our Space unit.  This is where all those pinterest ideas came in handy.

These are great websites:
 
Planets4Kids
NeoK12- we found tons of videos here on the planets and solar system
I loved this video on the relative size of the planets.
 
There were so many other ideas I wished we had time for, but alas, the week went by fast!
 
Star Wheel
Solar System Sugar Cookie
Make Your Own Constellations
Constellation books
 
Maybe we'll do some things this summer...Daniel was so into this unit.  He could answer every review question I asked.  He might grow up to be an astronomer one day.
