Topic of the Week: Preschool Astronomy

I couldn't think of an animal that would go well with the topic this week unless I did werewolves! This week is all about Astronomy for Preschoolers. Now these are not words normally associated together, but this time of year, Astronomy is quite accessible to kids of all ages.

Here in New England, sunset is around 4:30 pm and moon rise is not far off. In January, moon rise will be around 7:15pm and getting earlier for the rest of the month. Check out your moon rise times here.

The moon is full now and easily observable. Check out how the moon changes over the week and come back over the next few days as I give you some tools to explore the moon with your preschoolers.
