Do the Stars Go Away?
Today we talked about stars. They are one of the many wonders of the space world, and the kids got to experience a little bit about them. We started off by talking about if they thought the stars went away during the day. After much discussion, they were excited to learn that the stars are out no matter what time it is, and that was something we explored through our experiment. We used the flashlight and cups to represent the stars, and then viewed them with the lights on and then off. We talked about why and how they changed, and the class really had a lot to say about this. Be sure to ask a question or two about what they learned!
