My son completed his mini project of our Solar System unit and he finally got to display it in his room. It was a simple project for my 5 years old, something that I made him work during the midterm break.
I mentioned this previously in my post that we're going to plot the planets in a black craft paper. First thing, he placed all the INNER PLANETS. My son memorizes the order so I made he did all the work here. I decided that it would be best to label the planets so he can memorize the spelling.
As you can see, we added "asteroids" after Mars.
Then he continued with the OUTER PLANETS.
When everything is in place, he added stars (stickers).
And we both stick it on the wall using blutacks. And look how pretty it is! He was so happy how it turned out. He felt proud of what he has accomplished! And I have to say that the use of foil in planets made such a huge difference!! Now this is art and learning combined :)
