September Theme: Solar System Science
Day 1: September 8 – Spinning Through Space
Get ready to spin and orbit through class, just like our home planet does! This week we’ll learn how our spinning planet and the Sun work together to make day and night here on earth, what years actually are, and why we have seasons!
Day 2: September 15 - Over the Moon
Do you know why the moon has spots? Or why it changes shape each day? Or what the moon has to do with the months? To find out, join us as we investigate our closest neighbor in space!
Day 3: September 29 – Dance of the Planets
Put your dancing shoes on because this week you’ll be orbiting the sun in a special production of Dance of the Planets, a live-action theatrical play starring you! You’ll create your own model of a planet or other object in our solar system, then head outside to bring our solar system to life!
