Space Adventure
Today we learned about our favorite planet – EARTH!
We learned how important it is to take care of our earth, because it is the ONLY planet we can live on.
Earth is not the biggest planet or the smallest planet. It is not the hottest planet or the coldest planet. It is right in the middle, and it is just perfect for us. Earth is the only planet that has three forms of water. It is also the only planet with plants and wonderful things for us to eat!
We added an Earth page to our solar system books.

We practiced counting to one hundred and used leggos to practice making AB patterns.
