Continuing on the solar system

This week we learnt about the sun and the earth. The started by making a large sun collage, reinforcing the learning of colors and the concepts of hot and cold. Later, they learnt that the earth moves around the sun, taking a year. To demonstrate this, we put our collage on the floor and they each took turns to hold a globe and circle the sun. The number of times they circled the sun was equivalent to their age. Later we learnt about land and water forms, reinforcing again the colors of the earth. The each made a globe and looked at a model of the earth, showing how it looks inside.
