We started off viewing Venus, then Jupiter. We went to the Moon then finally Saturn.

I explained the best time to view the Moon when it isn't so full with my pan of flour. We made some craters and shined the flashlight at different angles to show how the shadows and light can make the surface more interesting. We also went over why we can't see the flag on the Moon, and why we only see one side of the Moon.

The demos really helped them understand their questions. It was so cool I had a prop for almost every question they had.
