Solar System and Beyond

The children are taken on a tour of the major planets; Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, as well as other major aspects in the solar system such as our moon and other planets moons.

In addition to this, the children are introduced to stargazing and the night sky. Children are taught the stories of the night sky and the constellations they apply to. This show teaches the children how to navigate around the night sky using the constellations such as 'Ursa Major' and 'Orion'.
