These actually turned out much nicer than I ever expected. The children loved talking about the sun and enjoyed hearing about the "giant ball of fire in the sky". Would you like to make a sun like ours? Start with a large round circle, we used thick poster board paper, and blob on some paint!Cover with clear plastic wrap and SQUISH it!
Next we glued our sun to a piece of very large blue construction paper and added the sunrays!
while others were happy with teeny, tiny rays.
while others are way to much LIKE ME! Either way, they were very, very yummy!
Our science experiment was all about the clouds! We started with a jumbo cotton ball (I had NO idea that cotton balls came in JUMBO) and a very small cup of water.
Next we put the cotton ball into the water, and squeezed it.
INSTANT RAIN! INSTANT FUN!
For our last science experiment we took a clear plastic cup and added plain water. We put a small amount of shaving creme on top. Then came the fun - a few drops of red and yellow food coloring. The food coloring slowly found it's way down into the water to make ORANGE rain! What fun! AND yes, we did it again with blue and yellow. And again, with red and blue! SUPER FUN!
Next week, my FAVORITE week - the SOLAR SYSTEM!!!! I hope you come back and as we rotate our way around the sun!
