The first grade artists had fun learning about the planets. They learned the order of the planets by remembering this simple phrase: My very excellent mother just served us noodles.
First they made the planets and colored them in with oil pastels, then they painted the back ground (space) black, then came GLITTER!!! After that the students created their own space ship.
