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.
Blast off on a mission to explore outer space and the objects in it. Learn about rocket propulsion with balloons and chemically powered rockets. Build a telescope and star map to investigate the stars and constellations. Assemble a model of the solar system and learn about the planets that share it.
Find out how Earth's rotation creates day and night, how Earth's axis and revolution around the sun causes the seasons, and how the moon's rotation around Earth gives us the phases of the moon. See for yourself how meteorites formed the craters on the moon. Make a moon flipbook and a moon calendar. Build a sundial and a solar collector to experiment with the sun. Grasp a comet's tail and learn about how meteoroids become falling stars.
