Kindergarten Moon Unit Study
I feel like we could spend months learning about the moon. There are so many ways to learn and play with a moon theme, and we are loving this unit of My Father's World Kindergarten. We've especially enjoyed the sensory play aspects of learning about the moon including making moon dough, our moon dust paint recipe, and an erupting moon dust prewriting tray. Of course, in addition to sensory play we've done many activities to learn facts about the moon. One of our main focuses is on how we get light from the moon. The theme for our moon unit is "I am the Light of the World". You may remember from our study of the sun that our theme was "Jesus is the Light of the World". We are the light of the world in the same way that the moon gives us light. To demonstrate how the moon gives us light at night J-Bug and I did a simple activity. All you need is a dark room, a flashlight, and a mirror.
