My son has been very interested in space lately, so I think I'll make this "space month"

My ideas:
- library books
-planetarium visit
- maybe a craft or two?

Have you done anything with space? Any suggestions?

Ooh my dad has a telescope!

Watch all the Magic school Bus episodes dealing with space and stars :) Look through a telescope and find constellations.

The planetarium! :)
We're going to try and go next week


Quoting KrissyKC:

Not yet, but after we finish Apologia anatomy, we already have astronomy ready to go.

What about letters to Nasa, buying space food, playing space games, make a model of a solar system, map out the distance to the sun using pennies to stand for like say 10 miles each or something?     Look up space themed websites.   Make one of those pin hole viewing box.   Find out what is going on in the real sky at different times... meteor showers...planets close enough to see... eclispes, etc.    Look up their birth year and see if anything exciting happened the year they were born....  use a flashlight to represent the sun and show how it shines on the earth and the other half is dark... discuss and demonstrate planetary rotation and such.   Do you have a space themed museum nearby?

We did a little demonstration where DD was the sun and stood still in the middle, DH was the earth and revolved around her while rotating and I was the moon facing DH the whole time while revolving around him.  Pretty fun!
