Day 4 God created the sun, moon and stars.

Activity #1 (language)
Sometimes it's a wonderful thing to read a book to learn.  What a novel idea eh? (pun intended as was my Canadian accent :))
So we got a book from the library called The Sun and curled up on the couch to read it.

Activity #2 (math)

I took a dark sheet of cardstock and divided it into sections with numbers 1-8.  Then Hudson used star stickers to put the appropriate amount in each section.

Activity #3 (art, science)

The moon is not smooth.  So Craig (the daddy at the acedemy) cut out a large poster board circle to be the moon.
Then I mixed a paste of flour and water.  Hudson smeared it on to the circle to make bumps and craters.
Upon drying however our moon's edges curled up and the poor fella was a little deformed.

What a great moon craft! When we were studying the letter "M" I couldn't find a moon craft that was 'just right' for us. This is perfect!!
