Constellation it has been since my last post.
And luckily, we left for the countryside during the weekend, giving us plenty of space to look at the sky, without interference from the lights.
So here is our road into learning about the universe as to now:
I had prepared a modeling dough earth, about a week ago, while we were into earth’s layer. Not having time to do this activity with him before, I sliced the planet with him to discover what is inside. He was so interested to see the inside of it!
I did the model with M, while X was at school. It was a very interesting and educational activity for her too!
I found a set of 3 part cards, not intended to be used that way, but as a guide. I provided X with a container of needles so he can stick the small papers in the right layer of the earth.
I have found this file here
But then, seeing that his interest exploded about anything constellations, I started to build an activity along this line.
X is crazy about paperwork. Files! He adores them. So, I built something that would have file as a medium:
Everything was put in a blue file folder
much to his delight.
