Our snack tonight was inspired by the beautiful clear evenings we've been having, affording us some gorgeous views of the moon.
We watched a couple of short, online, videos for kids (here, and here), explaining moon phases, and then recreated the waxing and waning of the moon, with Oreo cookies, following a worksheet from the Lunar and Planetary Institute.
After the children enjoyed their "moon" cookies, I read parts (the non-big-bang parts) of Seymour Simon's The Moon. The text is a little wordy for younger children, and it is certainly not written from a Christian perspective, but it contains some excellent, and interesting pictures of the moon.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
