Summer Stargazing

My daughter Claire and I pitched a tent in the yard over the Independence Day holiday and had a mother daughter sleepout.   I really enjoyed our time together in the cozy quiet of our tent.  It was a fun and relaxing evening. We read books and I taught her how to play a few new games. Backyard camping is a great way to introduce little ones to the wonders of nature.  When it comes to learning, the sky is a a magical playground for your child’s learning.  Here are some tips Scholastic put together last year for parents to review before heading outside for summer stargazing.  Here’s a link to a page on the NASA website that will tell you when you can look for the International Space Station flying over your house.  Very cool.
