I put this together for Pumpkin 1 to practice reading and to learn the order of the months of the year. While she’s at the learning stage she can match the Earth slips to the words on the Sun. This makes it more of an absorbent mind activity. Later, when she’s familiar with it, she can flip the Sun over and put the slips around without the control. I added a peg person to put on the month that we are in. It can further be used to explain the movement of the Earth around the Sun and how that creates our season and months.
