🚀Day 4- Space🚀

🌕The moon is a fascinating place! 🌕🌖You could draw the moon and label some of its features OR create a quiz to test your family!Click here to learn some amazing facts -> https://www.planetsforkids.org/moon-moon.html
🌍☀️🌕🚀Play a game🌍☀️🌕🚀 *** With members of your household have a go at playing this game… one of you is the Sun (you could make pictures of the sun, moon and earth if you wanted), choose someone else to be the Earth. The Earth starts to walk around the Sun. Earth also spins on its own as it goes around the Sun, so Earth now start spinning slowly as you walk around the Sun. (This is how we get day and night as the side of Earth facing the Sun is light and the side facing away is dark). Now choose someone to be the Moon. The Moon needs to move around the Earth and spin on its own too. THEN choose someone to be the Apollo rocket who will loop in a figure of 8 around the earth and the moon. Make sure no one collides as that would be a disaster!
