This week in PreK Art Lunch, we read three books that had something to do with rockets. "Hush Little Alien" is a play on "Hush Little Baby," with aliens. "A Circle in the Sky" shows how a girl uses various geometric shapes to build a rocket and fly to the moon. And "On the Launch Pad" is a counting book. Counting down from 12, the spaceship blasts off at the end of the book.
Though I didn't plan it this way, the project of making our own rocket pictures was especially timely because Nettel2theMetal was distributed on the same day, and the PreK section featured the students' ideas of where they would choose to blast off if they could.
