So the very last lesson of Apologia Astronomy was on space travel. Along with the lesson we read this Let’s Read & Find Out book on the ISS.
And this Usborne Beginners book about astronauts. This one was mainly for Jitterbug. The whole series of Usborne Beginners books are so good! Great pictures and illustrations, the kids love looking at them.
The project for this lesson called for making a model of the space station. If you have the book and have access to the course website, you can see pictures of space stations that others have made. So creative! Most used things from around the house…toilet paper rolls, cereal boxes, aluminum foil, things from the recycle bin. I…um…totally cheated and got the kids this Lego Space Shuttle instead. I don’t think they minded!
We are wondering why the astronaut came with a sword. To fight off aliens, maybe?
Jitterbug hasn’t quite shown the patience ability to put these kits together yet, so he mostly looked on while big brother put it all together.
Easy project for me, all I did was watch!
