Science/Art: The Planets

A few weeks ago, we did a lot of research on our planets, rockets, space stations, astronauts, and space in general. We watched YouTube videos, explored NASA’s website, played space games, watched movies based in space (because sci fi is always fun:)), and wrote stories/drew pictures of what it would be like to live on a space station or mars! This project really encumbered most of the subjects we talk about, if not all. We used math, writing, science, computer skills, research skills, art, and like SpongeBob says I-Mag-I-Na-Tion! Here is the biggest project we completed:

I found a lot of individual projects on pinterest about the solar system, but I wanted a giant one because things are cooler when they are bigger, both of my girls could work on it, and it is cool to look at. 🙂

We only did the planets on this one, along with each one's temperatures since we were talking about how cold or hot each one can be.

I love their crafty side:)

This one was fun. We watched documentaries on Netflix about astronaut training and hopefully we will take a trip to Houston’s Space Museum sometime in the near future..maybe after the Skoolie is finished for sure! I hope this helped anyone else looking for ideas!
