Today, Ellie planned a lesson on planets for me. Holy cow, the girls know a lot about the planets, thanks to The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That and Magic School bus books. Don’t you love how she looks with her stick pointer?

 

Here’s her lesson:

See that one. Do you know what that is? Yes, the sun. And this green thing is Mercury, the closest planet to the sun. And this is the one with rings and lots of moons. See this one with only one moon? It’s one what’s kinda close to Saturn, but smaller…it’s mars. (Zana: No mars has two moons. Ellie: Yeah, but I just drawed it with one.) And see this little blue in the corner here. That’s tiny pluto, the farthest planet from the sun.

    Wow. So is she accurate? That is one amazing lesson. Those two are a little scary. They may be running the classrooms their whole lives!

      Yeah, everything was correct. That was the funny part. This evening at bedtime all three kids were telling Scott all about butterflies and cocoons and Monarch migration. Then they said that they were scientists about butterflies.
