We are learning about our solar system which is the sun and all of the objects that orbit it including planets, moons, asteroids, comets, meteoroids, dwarf planets, etc. We began with the Earth and had a lesson on the layers of the Earth and we talked about how magma travels to create new land on the Earth by volcanic eruptions. They even got to watch some videos on eruptions. They loved to create their own Earth as seen from outer space which are drying and will be put up in the classroom for viewing. We practiced numbers from 1-10 as we counted backwards from 10 to blast off into outer space as I read them a poem.
