We have been learning about the moon and space and summer star gazing in the last month or so, after reading Midnight on the Moon and the companion research guide. It's been super fun. We realized that the anniversary of the first walk on the moon was happening, so that day we made a moon cake—which is the amazing ice cream bombe you see here. The vanilla is the crust, the chocolate is the mantel, and the raspberry sorbet is the core. Sweet tarts make the craters.
Lots of fun projects and a few pretend planets were created— Lucia, with11 moons, and Gloria, which had 100 moons, but then changed to 49 after drawing 100 moons proved tedious. They are both jovian planets, in case you are wondering. The third pretend planet is called Baby Diaper. It is small, rocky, near the sun, and has no moons.
I have added a catagory for this homeschooling fun stuff over on the sidebar there, called Learning. You can see more there, too.
