Let's Look Up!

Ages:Pre K - Kindergarten
This program encourages young students to observe and explore the world around them and introduces them to the wonders of the sky. They will learn about clouds, storms, rainbows, and the colors of the sky, and how Earth’s rotation causes the changes between night and day. Learn how people looked at the night sky and drew constellations using the stars, and how some points of light aren’t stars at all. Observe the changing shapes of the Moon over time and finally take a trip through the Solar System to visit and learn about the planets.
