Wow, I have not posted on her forever. It looks alot slower on here than when I posted. Hopefully it is still a pretty active board.
We are starting to talk about the solar system. He knows some about the solar system, but not much. We just started doing more in-depth information this week. I started with the sun and we have talked 2 days about it and then we will move on to planets closest to the sun and work to the last. I printed off some great worksheets from education.com and got a solar system kit to do with him. I am just wondering what other ideas you all have for some fun ways for him to learn the solar system and great things about it.

Have you looked at http://www.schoolexpress.com? They have lots of fun lesson workbooks and worksheets that you can print. I know my kinder/1st grader and preschool really enjoy then when I print them out. They also have an email program and each week they email a free workbook and next week is on the Sun.
We also like the Read and Learn Science books.
