This week my little ones had two big questions.
1. How many stars are in our solar system?
2. What is the name of the biggest star in our solar system?
We created this huge sun and hung it up in the center of our classroom to represent that the sun is in the center of our solar system. We also painted it yellow, orange, red and white to show that it is made up of lots of hot gas.
We watched this cute link from Brain Pop Jr.:
In my opinion Brain Pop Jr. is worth every penny. :)
