  1. Wonderful activities, such a variety. I loved teaching Space Unit when I taught fifth grade. SO interesting and so much to study and discover. Something interesting for everyone. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for the compliments and for stopping by! We love books, and with such an array of ages we tend to use them all! Hope you have a great week!!

  2. Oh my Gosh, this is great! I wish I could just poof it all here to my house. [A copy of all of it of course, not YOURS ;)]

    Thanks for all the great ideas and resources.

  3. Wow! You’ve got some really neat stuff there! The kids must love all the hands-on fun! We also studied Astronomy this year, but the kids have been done for about 6 weeks. (They just finished up a short unit on the Human Body.) It’s a great topic to learn about!
