First graders are exploring the Earth, Moon, and Sun in the Discovery lab. We played Earth Toss to see what the Earth’s colors are, and then we used a special comparing tool to understand the sizes of what is in our solar system. Students then were challenged to make a mini model of the Earth, Moon, and Sun using specific materials and paper circle cut outs. They did a great job putting their models together with the information they learned.
