Day 4-Sun, Moon, and Stars
Opening Song: I Am Like A Star Shining Brightly (CS 163)
Lesson: We headed outside with a flashlight, blanket, and binoculars. Together we read the scriptural account of the creation of the sun, moon, and stars in Genesis 1:14-19. We looked at the stars and the moon with our binoculars.
Activity: With our flashlight as our light, we sat outside in the dark and sang songs and read stories about the sun, moon, and stars. We sang "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," "I See the Moon," and "You Are My Sunshine." We read Goodnight Moon, Happy Birthday Moon, What the Sun Sees/What the Moon Sees, Wake Up Sun, and The Sun and Moon.
Snack: We came inside and ate Astronaut Ice Cream in honor of our outer space creations.
Craft: We made pretend telescopes together out of paper towel rolls. Paint the telescope, add star stickers, and have fun looking through it outside at the stars.
Art: For the 4th page in our book we glued down die cuts of a star, moon and sun.
Closing Song: Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam (CS 60)
