Screen Free Activities
Moon Journal- Make night-sky observations, go outside at about the same time each evening (when it’s dark) and observe the sky. Take a few minutes to enjoy the night sky. Talk to someone about what you see. For example, if it’s cloudy, you won’t see anything but clouds. If it’s clear, you will see stars (you might want to point out a constellation or two), planets (points of light that appear larger and brighter than stars), and sometimes the Moon. Discuss the changes in the night sky from night to night, especially the changing appearance of the Moon. To complete an entry, record the date and time, write a few sentences about what you observe, and draw a picture to show what the Moon looks like.
