Drawing of the Planets

This week I am giving a series of tests to my students to ensure that I give them the correct grade in their year-end report card. Even though they are in grade 1 and 2, I do insist they be quiet while they are writing so that each child has the environment in which to focus. Once the children have completed their test, I give them a sheet of paper on which to draw so that they are kept busy while their classmates continue with their test.

I loved what one of my students drew while waiting for his classmates to finish! He has been reading about the planets with his parents and drew a summary of what he had learned. The constellation he created in his drawing named after himself made me smile. πŸ˜€

What made you smile recently?

  1. Pretty good, and very good if 100% from memory – the colors are all correct ( well, for a kid using a crayon!). Not sure why he put the Kuiper Belt and not the more typical asteroid belt, or Oort Cloud, for that matter πŸ˜‰ but still very imaginative. But that moon is the size of Jupiter πŸ˜‰


      1. I agree, I do think he did a great job. As I said, very interesting that he got the colors correct. When I was 8, I don’t think astronomers knew that the Kuiper Belt existed, but everyone knew about the Asteroid Belt! Just interesting choices. Of course, the size of the Moon is funny, but it is funny in a way that reminds you that it was a kid doing it πŸ™‚ is
