Our Week in Review: Moon Week!

Week 4, Term 3, 2017

All the way to the moon!

This week we learnt so much including the phases of the moon, why the moon has craters and about first moon landing.

I set up a Moon sensory tub for Darius and filled it with flour, (great for little hands to explore), and space craft and space characters.

Here’s a link to SPACE THEMED SENSORY TUBS if your interested.

It seems Darius was not the only one who enjoyed the sensory tub. We had to keep the ‘other homeschool dog’ (the not so bright one)  out of the flour because he was EATING it!!

We have proof!

Yes, that would be flour all around his mouth!




In science we learnt about the phases of the moon with OREO COOKIE MOON PHASES!

We also learnt about astronauts and how they prepare food in space. Here’s a great link to a video from the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION and the lesson on ASTRONAUT PUDDING that my kids loved making. We discovered what dehydrated means and why food is lighter without water in it and how the astronauts have to rehydrate all their food.

In Math Cyrus continued budding on his knowledge of place value beyond the decimal point and how that relates to fractional numbers. We used SKITTLES for this very fun FRACTION LESSON. Darius learnt about measuring using non-standard units and comparing lengths.

Darius is reading PAPA, PLEASE GET THE MOON FOR ME and having lots of fun with reading and writing activities based around this book.

In Art, the boys had fun with MOON DUST PAINTING


We hope you enjoying sharing our week with us. Catch you all next week. Until then remember, don’t let your dog eat flour!

Love, The Gone Wild Homeschool Boys
