This week preschoolers have been introduced to the Solar System. Children are very fascinated by space, the planets.
Children learned some facts about the sun. They learned that the sun is a star, it is bigger than the Earth and it is very hot. The Sun gives us light and heat. The sun is the biggest object in our Solar System. It is a big ball of burning gases. We discussed why the sun looks bigger, because of it being closer to the Earth than other stars.
We read books about the Solar System.
