Monthly Theme - Our World and the Universe

Our lesson plans for February were based on space explorations.  The school had the first week off as a break and the second week was devoted to Valentines Day, but you could easily stretch some of these activities into additional days.  For older students especially, you could devote an entire day to each of the planets.

Week 1: The Planets
- make a telescope
- Mercury & Venus
- Earth & Mars
- Jupiter & Saturn
- Uranus & Neptune
- Pluto
- Observatory field trip

- solar system: sun, moon, earth orbits & poster
- moon 
- sun
- stars and constellations
- robots
- commets, meteors
- aliens
- future space explorations
- build a rocket
