With this study, one of the things we are really enjoyed has been learning a little bit about some of the astronauts that have been to the moon. What their hobbies were as a kid, what they studied in school, etc. It has been a great start for some discussions with N1 about how different subjects may lead into different careers in life, as a love of science did with these men.
As always, this study has some great hands-on lapbook elements for your elementary aged students as well as an amazing suggested library list for read-alouds and independent reading for your student.
Magnificent Moon was a lot of fun and we look forward to wrapping it up over the next few days! Thank you Download N Go for the chance of another fun unit study!
