PROPS (PUPPETS, FLANNEL BOARD, ETC.):
    Rockets
    Magnet Board Story: “Alien on the Farm”
    Flannelboard rhyme: “Little Rocket's Trip” (rocket, multiple stars, Mars, Saturn, moon with a
             face, Earth)
    A little rocket roared off one day / On a trip into space so far away.
    While zooming about he saw some stars / Then he circled around the planet Mars.
    He saw planet Saturn, and the man in the moon,
    Then he saw planet Earth and back home he zoomed!
       I’M FLYING TO THE MOON (tune: Farmer in the Dell; use with magnet board figures)
       I”m flying to the moon / I’m flying to the moon. / Blast off, away I go / I’m flying to the moon.
       Other verses:
       I’m going in a space shuttle
       I’m landing in the lunar module
       I’m wearing my space suit
       I’m wearing my space boots
       I’m wearing my space gloves
       I’m wearing my space helmet
       I’m leaving footprints on the moon
       I’m driving the moon rover
       I’m planting the US flag
       I’m flying back to Earth.

CRAFT SUGGESTIONS:
        Younger: Extra-terrestrial facemask
        Older: Same
        PLAY TELESCOPE: From: The Tea Party Book by Lucille Recht Penner. You need: Black
colored paper, tape, plastic wrap and silver star stickers. You roll the black paper into a tube and
tape it together. You cut a circle out of the plastic wrap and tape it over one end of the tube. Then,
you stick some silver stars on the plastic wrap. Everyone can use their homemade telescope to look
at the moon.
        ROCKETS: Make a cone shape from construction paper and tape to make a rocket ship.
Paint it silver, add glue and glitter stuff with colorful shredded paper with some strips dangling out the
bottom. Run your rocket ship with you through the sprinkler and imagine you're traveling through an
ice crystal shower on the moons of Jupiter, cool spots of the universe!
