Space Exploration - Experiment Manual Sample Pages (PDF)

If you want your children to be in awe of God's creation, then start with the solar system. We know from Psalm 19 that not only do the heavens declare the glory of God but that they do it without uttering a single word. The more we understand the solar system, the more we will understand how this could be. Space Exploration will give your children a grand overview of space. From rocket propulsion to star investigation, this kit will give your child a series of hands-on projects so that he will gain a basic understanding of astronomy. Straightforward experiments look at how a telescope works; why we have days, nights, and the seasons; why the moon has craters; and how to make a sundial. A full-color, 32-page experiment book guides your young space explorer through 22 effortless experiments, though it does includes a couple of invalid statements on the age of the solar system that can and should be ignored.

    My kids loved doing the Space Exploration projects. Even though their ages are from 6-11 there was something for all of them. It was very easy for them to read the directions and figure out the projects.
