Gail Gibbons has written more than one hundred children’s books…mostly non-fiction.
I’m a little late to the game for June’s Virtual Book Club for Kids, but I really wanted to participate since it was an author that I really enjoy.
I thought that I’d gather activities related to her space and solar system books since it’s summer and here in central Texas night time is pretty much the only time we can go outside! LOL
Also there’s a free 20 page Activity Guide called Explore the World of Science…with Gail Gibbons aimed at K-3.
Preschool Express has a whole page of moon themed activities including art, language, games, science, snacks and music.
Bright Hub Education has five fun star crafts that your child will love.
Busy Bee Kids Crafts has a planet print out so that you can create your own solar system.
Preschool-Plan-It has a whole list of space themed activities that will keep you busy including snacks, crafts, math activities, blocks, sand activities, songs, and so much more!
Fairy Dust Teaching has a glittery recipe for galaxy playdough that is out of this world!
I hope these ideas help your kids explore space in a fun way.
