As mentioned on Monday, Koko wants to be an astrophysicist when he grows up. What better way to foster their love of a subject than to make resources readily available for them. Below you’ll find a small portion of the free astronomy resources available online.

Montessori-Inspired Moon Unit from Living Montessori Now
A moon unit is great at any time, but this week is an especially good time to study the moon. July 16, 1969, was the liftoff of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Mission. July 20 is the anniversary of the first walk on the moon.

Montessori-Inspired Astronomy Units from Living Montessori Now
April 28 is International Astronomy Day. There are many other astronomy-related calendar observances throughout the year, though. Any time is a good time for an astronomy unit study.

Update: The Human Skeleton

This week we focussed on the skeleton (our theme for the week) and went over the basic functions of the bones.

Monday we did an overview of the Skeleton (see the post below)

Tuesday we did the Skull and Ear

Wednesday we did the Rib Cage and Spine

Thursday we did the Arm and Hand

Friday (today) we did the Foot and Knee

I am exceptionally happy with Noo’s progress over the last week. His reading has improved 10 fold as well as his over attitude towards his work.

This week I also managed to sort out our book shelf. Some of Noo’s “school” books are on the top shelf as well as Koko’s puzzles and some craft supplies that need to be sorted and repacked into the craft drawer.  Our reading and story books are on the second shelf and our files are on the bottom shelf with the Practica activities.

It’s international astronomy year, so on Thursday I contacted Sivuyile Manxoyi ( from The South African Astronomical Observatory in Cape Town to get some information from them and the he said he will mail brochures, posters, an Astro CD and hands on activities that they do at the observatory to me today FREE of charge. I’m thrilled, can you tell. Now I’ll have allot of information straight from the source, so to speak, when we do the solar and star systems.
