Moon Rock Throw
Submitted by Annette
Take sheets of paper (preferably paper that would have been thrown away anyway) and crumple them it up into balls. Divide your class into two teams line them up about two to four feet apart and have them toss the rocks (crumpled paper) from one end to the other without dropping it. If they drop it they must start from the first person tossing again.

Alternatively you can put the two teams about six to ten feet from each other and let them play moon rock dodge ball

Have your children decorate a washer as a planet and a Popsicle stick as the sun. Attach the washer to one side of a piece of yarn and the Popsicle stick to the other (helps to cut a notch in the stick). Tell your children to hold the sun (Popsicle stick) and spin the yarn causing the planet to orbit.
