We've been studying space rocks! To go along with our chapter, we made this simple comet craft with stuff we already had around the house. You can find the instructions for this easy peasy activity on the blog, First Grader At Last.
We also watched the video for "What is a Shooting Star?" by They Might Be Giants
Finally, we wrapped it up with a game of Comet Toss which came in one of our Kiwi Crates. I don't think I've mentioned Kiwi Crates on here yet but I will soon make a whole post on them so you can learn about how awesome they are.
