During their “exploring space” project, children in pre-K class did a number of things…
Constructed their own telescopes to watch the stars…
Created their own planets, based on what they read about in books…
Also constructed the moon: used everyday materials to make the shape of a circle and then painted it white by using glue, shaving foam and glitter!
Their next mission: teddy bear visits the moon!

When you are 4 y.o. you ask questions, all the time. Never ending, unlimited questions .
Questions like these lead us to look for answers about space.
Today, our children experiment space by creating paper planets. Tomorrow, they may go visit them!
There must be always a way!
After all, astronomy is a science – and we never say never to science!!!
