Learning about our solar system can be great fun!
One of our favorite Summer activities is Meteor watching during the Perseid showers in August.
We stay up late into the wee hours watching as amazing streaks of color flash across the sky.
It’s considered one of our yearly Family traditions and it’s a fantastic way to get the kids interested in Astronomy!
(This year it will be making it’s appearance on August 13th)
When my children were younger, we learned the names of the planets by singing a song.
And while it wasn’t a Rap song, it was still just as effective at teaching them the correct order.
My youngest two children are now ready to learn about the planets so I’ve been busy drawing and creating simple resources we can use.
You can even grab the clipart and customize your own resources.
