Space and then back to Earth insha'Allaah

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

The unit on transportation took a turn and led to an exploration of space alhamdulillaah. From here, it's back to earth to explore the desert and learn about how the Prophet - salllaallahau alayhi wa salam- traveled from place to place. And this will lead into Hajj insha'Allaah. 

Here are snippets from the transportation unit as it lead into space:

 Math work included number puzzles and patterning
(click on the pictures for larger view insha'Allaah)

Language Arts included Montessori 3-part cards and many storytimes about space.
In this packet there are about 9 cards (cards with words, cards without words and words only) for children to work with. Also inside of this packet is a mini-reader for students about space. You can download the book here insha'Allaah (Arabic only).

For a tutorial on how to make the pockets (the pocket is about 14cm x 13cm) to store Montessori 3-part cards visit this website insha'Allaah.

Language Arts also included a workbook about space 
(the workbook is about 26cm x 19.5 cm). 

Children complete the sentence: "This is..." by cutting out and gluing the correct word based on the picture on the page. There are 6 pages of this nature. Also included in the workbook is a page for students to draw a line to match the word to the correct picture, count the number of space objects and trace over the number (not pictured), a space words memory game (stored in the zip-lock bag on the inside cover of the workbook), and glued to the inside back cover of the workbook are ayaat from Surah Ash-Shams. Students listen to the teacher/parent recite the ayaat and when they hear one of the words that have been studied in this unit, they highlight the word using a highlighter.

It was enjoyable to watch the transportation unit move from the ground to the sky. The interest in space was very evident and each activity was either asked for or done with joy alhamdulillaah. But as al-Hajj is upon us alhamdulillaah, it is time to head back to Earth and visit the desert insha'Allaah.

Enjoy insha'Allaah!
