Summer can be the perfect time of year to study astronomy and other aspects of the universe. The weather is warm.  Night skies are often clear.  Use these activities and free printables by day and then grab your telescope and enjoy the stars, moon, and planets at night.

I don't know what it's like where you live but there is an over abundance of insects in the summer here.  Every summer this leads to discovery, observation, and numerous bug encyclopedias being spread out all over the house.  These activities and free printables are the perfect addition to all the learning that goes on.
