When we read through the research guide on Space, she kept wanted to talk about Galileo. She really liked the picture of him and finds pleasure in saying his name. Not exactly sure what fascinates her about the man, but I’m glad she took an interest in Astronomy this week.

Stars, Stars, Stars! is a great book to start a kid out on the wonders of space.

After the unit, show the kids this video of a Space Station Astronaut doing a water demonstration from space! The kiddo was really amazed: http://io9.com/watch-what-happens-when-you-wring-out-a-washcloth-in-sp-476159356
