The Asteroid Belt is a region between the inner planets and outer planets where thousands of asteroids are found orbiting around the sun. We spent a significant portion of our week discussing asteroids and what they mean to us as Earthlings.
Following a lengthy discussion on the various inhabitants of the asteroid belt, we decided to dig for our own!
To incorporate multiple objectives, students were encourage to “dig” for their asteroids and then place them onto a pre-made letter A. Doing so encouraged the practice of fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and phonemic awareness.
