Question and Wonder:

  • What do you wonder about space? Maybe you want to be an astronaut one day or you are curious about where meteorites come from?
  • What do you notice about the night sky? How do you think stars and planets look up close?

Discussion and Conversations:

  • Try finding the moon during the day. Did you know that the moon, stars and other planets are always there, even though we can’t see them? Why do you think they are easier to see at night?
