Outer Space

I know that Josh has been learning about the solar system at school. It was not in the focus guide where the topics that will be covered within the month are listed. I know, because he came to me with this drawing and took pains to explain to me what each part was:

The Planet Earth - The blue thing in the middle, with areas shaded to depict land masses.

The yellow round things around the Earth? In case you didn’t already guess, they are the Moon –in different phases, as it goes around the Earth. (Josh pointed out to me each phase and explained how "more and more shadows get on the moon.")

The Sun.

And what would be a good space drawing without an alien in his spaceship?

Phases of the Moon
