Students got to paint their moon with a mixture of white paint and flour.  To complete the moon, they added "craters" using the lid of a water bottle!  So much fun and SO cute!

Goodnight Moon and other Moon ideas

After reading Goodnight Moon, my preschoolers made this cute craft. This idea came from a Mailbox magazine. Keeping with the moon theme, I also read I Took the Moon for a Walk later in the week, and we then created this project... (idea from I Heart Crafty Things- a great blog with lots of wonderful craft ideas) This one says, "If I could take the moon for a walk, we would go to my house." I did the writing for the kids, but they did the precious artwork. Here is another one... This one…

Rocketship Blastoff

We finally got a BIG box to finish our rocketship. We wrapped the box around the slide then started adding features from recycled pieces. Windows and control switch board. We played for a bit. Then made costume pieces; booster packs and helmets. Then played some more. Next came lights and hanging planets to help us pretend that we are flying in space. Today we added arms for collecting rock samples and continued playing.

Hunter's Moon

It's a full moon. Strange things happen on full moons. Or so they say. There is a scientific theory called the Lunar Effect that tries to explain why this may be the cause of deviant (for lack of a better word) behavior from humans at certain times in the moon's cycle. It's unexplainable. Not to be confused with the "Transylvanian Effect," (men turning to werewolves, witches incantations holding increased stamina, or other mythological bullshit theories) the Lunar Effect holds some validity…

Students are given a circle as well as space for the date of the entry and space for the name of the phase. If you copy the journal double-sided, you can get them to observe an entire luna...
