Sunny Sunny Day! (Objects in the sky)

Hello Everyone!
This week we spent a lot of time learning about the sun. Our science curriculum stresses learning about and observing the objects in the sky.  We learned some amazing facts about the sun through reading books and getting on PebbleGo.  We had some fun with some poetry and created a craft connection to go along with our poetry.  (I forgot how much fun finger painting can be!)

Tomorrow we plan on measuring shadows. But I think it's going to be a rainy, rainy day. 
Next week?? The Mysterious Moon!  Stay tuned!!
Joyfully!
