After you've participated in the Planetarium Star Show (either live or by listening to the MP3 download), treat your kids to a Solar System Treasure Hunt!  You'll need some sort of treasure (I recommend astronomy books or a pair of my favorite binoculars, but you can also use 'Mars' candy bars or home made chocolate chip cookies (call them Galaxy Clusters) instead.

You can print out the clues and hide these around your house on a rainy day.  Did you know that I made these clues up myself as a refresher course after the astronomy presentation?  Enjoy!

  6. My kids loved this one, too. Even the ones who didn’t think they wanted to participate. I’d love to see more of these types of reviews for other units.

    Thanks for a fun way to review — my kids loved running around and a great way to get one of my kids who insists she isn’t “into” science laughing and involved.
