Toward the end of the year, we studied space! We learned about the solar system, several planets, the Earth and how the planets rotate around the sun.

Space all kids

Last year, we had the pleasure of having a student in our school whose parents were visiting astronomers from Venezuela! They made planet models for us and we used them again this year to rotate around the sun. Here this group each had a planet (some comets and asteroids too) and they practiced rotating around the sun in the middle!

Luke and space

We also had coloring pages for the planets. Here a child decided to cut them out and glue them onto a background. He then labeled each planet.

Venus 1

We made a beautiful Venus!

Rishabh's earth

This child spontaneously drew Earth on the easel. He loved telling us all about what he drew on the Earth!
