Space is huge, so how can we measure things in our solar system?  What are some of the constellations we see in the night sky and their stories? What is the order of the planets? How many stars are in our solar system?

The answers to all these questions are in this month’s Homeschool Adventures! Here at Schlagle Library, we’ve created a video similar to our onsite program, complete with a tour of the night sky using our StarLab software. To request a copy of this video, please email

Copies will also be available for curbside pickup upon request. Simply call 913-295-8250 opt. 2 to request your copies. 

For an at home activity, you can download this Star Wheel to help you with your nighttime gazing.
