How To Use A Telescope: Observing Clouds
So much fun to be had this time of year! For those who wanted to observe the clouds this afternoon I set up a telescope for them to be able to get a closer view.
Notice the step stool:) It is just one of the many things I learned to always look at since discovering the Montessori Method, things should be at a child's height. Step stools offer this outlet when other things can't be manipulated to fit the need.
They loved to practice zooming in and out.
They paid close attention to my words when I said do not point the telescope at the sun!
In the end they all felt like they were old pros at using the telescope.
We picture walked through this book before going outside, and finding the clouds talked about for ourselves.
