Abe's kindergarten class had a blast creating space inspired art projects. They taped cardboard tubes together to make sculptural telescopes. They punched holes in one end to create a constellation. At another table they used moon rocks (crayon shavings) to create a warm planet, cool planet, or one of their own creation. We melted shavings between two sheets of wax paper and then cut out a circular planet. They wrote on tags the name of their planet and labeled it. Finally, they created a space helmet out of a paper bag. We had them decorate a pizza box which cleverly contained all of their space goodies. It was a delight to watch their imaginations blast off. I tried to only include pictures of hands and not faces because of anonymity, but I couldn't resist one of the last photos of a loyal Michigan fan.
