One of the students in our classroom was very interested in space; the sun, the moon, facts about the planets. So I created a small inquiry center about space so he could continue to learn and explore. A number of students have grown very interested in that center and we have had some great work come from it. Here is what we have:
- some constellation cards (from here),
- Pictures of each of the planets (a student was quick to point out that they weren’t to scale!),
- A magnetic solar system with all the plants,
- Books about space,
- Clipboards and paper.
We also made some moon rocks, (not pictured), see how I made there here.
