My Project

We are looking forward to our Space Unit in a couple of weeks. This is a new unit for me to be teaching, so I don't have any resources to pull from. The kids are dying to learn about "outside space" and our moon and stars.

We are asking for some new books, sensory table activities, and stuff to transform our room into the galaxy!

The new books focus on The Sun, The Moon, The Stars, and Astronauts. We are asking for some sand and sensory things to put into the sensory tub. We want a rocket that we can put together, and some tools to help with our art projects!
