Fun Times With Friends
Last night we had our constellation and moon viewing homeschool event. Not as many people were able to come, but the ones that did had a ball. I have to tell you, if you can purchase a really good pair of binoculars, they are easier to handle and they see just as good as a telescope. I will be looking for a pair for us. DJ actually broke the telescope off the tripod, because we don't usually use the tripod, lol. The telescope is fine though. They were amazed by the technology available on my phone to look at the moon's surface, and the constellations. This coming week, for Science, I am adding some moon lessons, just to expand on last night. DJ of course had to remind us that the moon does not glow, it is the sun shining on the surface that makes it bright. We had moon pizzas, with moon rocks, a moon phases painting craft, fire with smores, and the kids had a ball playing hide and seek in the dark. And the weather was perfect.
