April Theme: Our Sky
This month we will explore things in the sky including the Sun, Moon, and stars. The students will form hypotheses, gather observations, and draw conclusions, make constellations, investigate sundials, experiment with UV light, and discover changes in the Moon.
Week 1 (April 6) | What's in the Sky?
Children will make telescopes and explore what is in the sky during both day and night.
Week 2 (April 13) | Day and Night
Children will use flashlights to explore the difference between day and night.
Week 3 (April 20) | Moon Phases
Children will explore and document Moon changes over a period of 1 week.
