We've been studying astronomy for past year and a half though the amazing Jeannie Fulbright book, Exploring Creation with Astronomy.
I can't say enough good things about this book. It explains astronomy in a simple way. It brings it to their level and is not a typical boring text book. The kids have learned so much!
Anyhow, we finally downloaded the Google Sky App for Android...
And for the first time this evening, we were able to find some of the planets that we've studied in the night sky. The sky wasn't very clear tonight so we are looking forward to exploring more with this new tool!
Stay tuned for our upcoming Science Fair project. You might be able to guess what our topic will be this year ;)
