Our Solar System

On Friday we wrapped up our unit on space.   The kids all seemed to really enjoy learning facts about the planets in our solar system.  We began by learning a little rhyme to help us remember the order of the planets.DSCN0302

Then we practiced ordering the planets by coloring  them and making a solar system art project.DSCN0303 DSCN0304 DSCN0306

All week long we learned fun facts about each planet in our solar system.  Hopefully your child shared some of them with you.  We read a book each day and recorded information we learned in our space book and drew a picture of each planet.DSCN0358 DSCN0357DSCN0356  DSCN0360DSCN0363DSCN0359   DSCN0362  DSCN0364 DSCN0361

At the end of the week we used our space book to write a story about our adventure in space and what we might see if we went to each planet.  We also made a cute astronaut art project of ourselves.  It’s amazing how many of them looked just like us!!!DSCN0381 DSCN0383 DSCN0385  DSCN0387

Our stories are hanging in the hallway.  We will bring them home to share with you at the end of the week.
