Astronomy Catch Up

Well I am about three chapters behind in chronicling our events in Astronomy. We have had a lot going in our neck of the woods and we also plan to do some traveling soon, so here is a very short nut shell version of our recent pages and project.

Space Rocks Title page by Max 
Each time we begin a new set of pages we try to think of a color or in this case a way to decorate the page so it reminds us of the planet we are studying. We had alot of fun splattering paint to make these pages.

 Because Jupiter and Saturn both rotate so quickly they have strong winds, or hurricanes. We made this hurricane in a bottle to see how this happens.

All of our lapbook mini books came from these two sources:

And the solar system map drill which we do at the end of each chater is found here.


  1. Wow, what a great example! Thanks for sharing!

  2. We are doing Exploring Creation with Astronomy as well. We are using the premade notebooks and having some fun. I can see that you guys have a great time with the lapbooks.
