About 4 weeks ago my son started getting very interested in the solar system... VERY interested. I found a YouTube video to teach him more about the planets...
It is an awesome video, that has really taught him so much... more than I ever knew about the solar system! He has the whole song memorized, sings it often around the house, and draws planets and talks about them to anyone that will listen. Lately, he has also been into making books. Well, he has since made about 4 solar system books. One was based on the video above, using the words from the song created by "KIDsTV123". (They have other great catchy songs too!)
So, we wrote down the words to the song, and found some planet printables online. (you can just google images for "planet worksheets"). Then we just used glue, staples, construction paper, crayons, and so on to create the book.
BTW...the picture at the top is his Halloween costume... a little obsessed, ya think?!
