This learning block represents one week’s work. Aim to watch at least one video and choose at least one activity or project to complete. 

There are two videos to choose from about the moon. The first one is better for younger kids, the second one will appeal to older kids. Feel free to watch one, or both!

Puffy Paint Moon Craft

The puffy paint is made of two parts shaving cream and one part glue with a few drops of black or blue food colouring added.  The “moon” is a paper plate. Make the craters with marbles or small balls, or even your thumb! Here’s a tutorial with instructions.
