Our Solar System
Our planet isn’t the only planet ....just like our house isn’t the only house in our neighborhood.
Our solar system was our next topic of conversation. One of the things we marveled at was how very lucky we are to live on this beautiful planet that is just the right distance from the sun to sustain life.
We have a cool new solar system model that really turns that we used for the first time. It shows how the planets all revolve around the sun. We set out drawing supplies and the children became very interested in drawing the sun and all the planets. Some paid attention to size differences and order while others were more concerned with the colors of the planets.
