Ladybugs In Space!

This year the Ladybugs (and Spiders) are learning about Space and the James Webb Space Telescope.  During their first rotation in STEM, the Ladybugs made Balloon Rockets, Modeled the Universe, made telescopes, and learned about invisible forms of light (also called radiation).  Check out the pictures below!

Also, Parents, Balloon Rockets are a simple and SUPER FUN way to spend a rainy weekend afternoon.  You will need the following: 1) Balloons (the long ones work better), 2) Straws, 3) Tape, 4) clothes pins and 5) String or fishing (monofilament) line (fishing line works better).  All of these items can be bought at the Dollar Store.  Your child can blow up the balloon, clip the opening shut with the clothes pin, and tape the straw to it.  Then you load it on the string or fishing line and let it go!!  See how far you can get it by using a measuring tape (also available at the dollar store).
