Astronomy Facts & Fun: A Topical Studyby Mrs. Catherine McGrew Jaime, Mrs. Deirdre Fuller, Miss Maria Jaime
Over the years we have enjoyed frequent studies of astronomy - particularly the History of Astronomy. I am not an astronomer, I am a historian, and that's how I've approached these studies. During those times we have developed a fair number of educational products to increase our enjoyment - including timeline games, several min-units/lapbooks, and more. Now for the first time, we have put all of those different things together in one book. Here you will find: an introduction to astronomers, mini units on five specific astronomers (Copernicus, Galileo, Charles Messier, William Herschel, and Caroline Herschel), a planets mini unit/lapbook, a mini unit on the development of the microscope and telescope, a History of Astronomy Time-Line Game, and a Space Exploration Time-Line Game.
Warning: This is a book about astronomy written by a Christian. As such, it includes Scriptures in several places. If you do not want the Biblical perspective when you teach it, you can easily leave out those portions.
For more on lapbooking, see our Lapbooking Made Easy Expanded Edition. There you will find many ideas (general and specific) on using lapbooking in your educational journey.
