Little Lambs Exploring the Heavens Lapbook


Does your little boy want to be an astronaut when he grows up? Does your little girl pretend to be speeding through space in a rocket ship?

Space is such a fun subject! Engaging little ones in an exciting STEM study like this one can lead to a lifetime of interest in science topics of all kinds. Looking at the stars is always fascinating. We will look at stars, make models, play with constellation blocks, make phases of the moon with Oreos, and make a rocket out of paper towels. Did I mention space bingo?  Little Lambs Exploring the Heavens Lapbook brings together games, crafts, hands-on learning and lessons the youngest learners can understand. Using living books and fun activities, the youngest students are introduced to astronomy in a way that leaves a lasting positive impression.
