Our next unit is going to be studying the solar system. I’m pretty excited about it, partly because I know Joey will really enjoy it and all the ideas I’m finding on space units from other Montessori blogs.
Here’s just a few of the great ideas I’ve come across:
Formation of Stars
Homemade Solar System Mat
I have some random black fabric that’s been sitting around for a while, it might have just have a new purpose.
Phases of the Moon
Making Moon Sand
And a few non-space related ideas that we’ll be putting into practice:
I love this idea. Joey has a journal he writes and doodles in regularly, but I like how this teacher has made them more purposeful and a bit artistic. It may take some more planning on my part, but I think it’ll pay off in the long run.
Great tips for a more effective school time. We already do some of these, but others I’m still working on.
