Kindergarten Moon Party

It was a party week! My class has recently been learning about space and the moon, and was thrilled to learn about Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield this past week. We decided we needed a party to celebrate all of our exciting spacey learning! There was a full moon on a Tuesday-so we went for it! We had a song and dance prepared to show our parents and the kids all came ready for bed in their PJs! I will have to get some more photos to post - but here is a shot of the room before the excitement began.

Not a great photo - but you can kind of see the big felt planets hanging by the windows.

 I made some chocolate star suckers for the students to enjoy after their performance.  
Rockets that the students made hung from the ceiling...  
We also had a couple of awesome space bulletin boards too...  
 Here is a close-up of that craft. I used a picture of each student with a Cricut astronaut (Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge). The astronaut is inside a styrofoam bowl covered up with a clear plate - to look like a UFO. The students decorated their spaceship with craft gems and sparkles to simulate lights, and added an alien for a spacey touch! They loved making these, and you can hardly look at them without smiling. So cute! They had to write a sentence about what they wonder about space to accompany their spaceship craft. This one says I wonder what the moon looks like. Love it!!
