Earth is the third planet from the sun. It is special because it is the only planet with known life. Earth is mostly made up of ocean water. We gave the kids an invitation to create their own Earth. They were given paper, glue, markers and a paper plate. The kids could tear or cut their green, black and blue paper to create their earth collage.
Planet Mercury is extremely hot and cold. We made a planet Mercury stick. We painted one circle red and the other blue to represent the hot and cold!
Mars is know as the "Red Planet" because of all the iron. They created their own version of Mars using paper, red, sand and stickers.
We worked on letter R & Z. Next week we will finish the rock planets and start the giant plants! 5-4-3-2-1 Blast off!
