The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

Astronomy: You Can Do It!

We are studying the solar system and calculated our own lunar jump right here on earth and you can too!

Supplies to do the Moon Jump

  • measuring tape
  • large sheet of paper
  • crayon/marker
  • calculator(for the younger kids)

1. We put a large sheet of paper on the wall and then jump up and put a mark where you jumped up to

2. We measured how high up the mark was.

3. We multiplied the hight by six and that is our jumping on the moon

I then tried to get Benji to play along and low and behold he just wanted to color!

*** What is your moon weight?

  1. stand on a standard scale and record your weight
  2. divide by six and that is your lunar weight!
