This is the telescope we made using two magnifying glasses. It made things upside-down, and that's about it. I suppose it would have worked if we had stronger magnifiers.
Anyway, we've been learning about the moon.
Using marbles and strings dipped in paint, Miah and Larkin made some moon art.

Miah and Larkin each have a moon chart and have been recording the phases of the moon - when they can. We've had a lot of rainy/cloudy days, so the chart is very spotty. We'll just have to extend this activity until we can see the moon more consistently. It has really made them more aware of the moon and its phases though. The other pictures are of their lapbooks and their narrations.

“ The sun shall no longer be your light by day,
Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you;
But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light,
And your God your glory.
Your sun shall no longer go down,
Nor shall your moon withdraw itself;
For the LORD will be your everlasting light,
And the days of your mourning shall be ended."
Isaiah 60:19,20
