Recap: Summer Reading Program Week 3

Last week was our third week of our Summer Reading Program and it took us to infinity and beyond during Science Camp!

Monday, we took off in a rocket and explored the moon, and of course, many other fun planets too. We turned yarn into Yarn Planets. Adding texture is always a good time, we splattered, squished, and let dry, the results of our space art – Moon Art!

On Wednesday, we discovered stories through space. Did you know that the word astronaut stands for “Star Sailor”? Or how about this, an astronaut’s suit weighs more than 220 pounds and will take 45 minutes to put on? We had a good, yummy time with the Summer Skies Marshmallow Constellations Activity. We even danced to the Moonwalk Freeze Dance.

Friday, we enjoyed eating like an astronaut.  We spent time with Chris Hadfield in the cabin of a spaceship and learned the tricks and tips astronauts do while in space. As the week of learning all about space came to an end, we mixed ingredients together and made Astronaut Chocolate Pudding, while enjoying the sounds of space in the background.
