I didn’t get a lot of science time in last school year. So, I decided what better time to start than summer. I asked the kids what they wanted to learn about and Abby said the planets. I got Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Astronomy . Our first chapter was just basically what astronomy is.
Then they got to do a fun activity with Dad making the planets out of balloons. He had a lot more patience for measuring around the balloons than I did. We tried to make them an accurate size(besides the sun), but we didn’t measure distance. They had a lot of fun and they pretty much know the planets in order from the Sun now, with the help of Blues Clues. I am having fun learning right along with them.
