This year with the new Science TEKS we got to explore the sky!!! I was very excited because the kids LOVE everything there is about space. We concentrate mostly on the differences and similarities between day and night, and the sun, moon, and stars. For our school Family Science Night I made several stations for the 1st grade friends to have fun learning with.
Facts about the Sun and Moon Venn Diagram
Phases of the Moon Flow Map
Space Book Station - Read a book and create a circle map about facts you learned from the book
Things I Do...at night and day time sort
Day and Night Picture Concentration Game...I just found different pictures during the day and pictures at night, printed 2 of each picture. This was a BIG hit with the kids.
