Here's a sample of the program items we'll have for the kids -
"The Solar System Ballet" (grades K-5)
We will see pictures of the planets and moons, and learn their proper order in the Solar System. Then we get to act out the Solar System. Each participant gets to be a planet or moon. We will have to figure out how to do the orbiting, moon around planet and planet around sun. It will give us a physical feel for orbits.
"Planetary Orbits Experiment" (grades 4-8)
We will recreate the Solar System to scale in our class room, first figuring out the scale of the orbits, then the size of the objects. It will be quite revealing! For anyone good in math there will be many fun challenges (but you don't have to do the math in order to have fun).
