In Part One, the class would learn about telescopes and what they have done to improve / advance civilization. The students could then “build” their own “telescopes” by coloring the outsides of TP or paper towel tubes using Crayons, markers, or finger paints (OMG!). Hey! We even managed to work Art into Science class!
With Part Two comes Nature Study. The telescopes become microscopes with the Little Nature Explorers crawling around in the grass and among the bushes looking at life through their ‘scopes. A vociferous discussion soon erupts about all the colors, and bugs, and leaves, and pebbles, and worms, and…, and…, and…
It’s Grand to be a Kid again!
Thank You for visiting,
P.s. Do you think you might try this with your own kids? You did?! How’d it turn out? What did they discover? Share their stories for us all to enjoy.
