Specifically, they are acting out the discovery of Uranus by William & Caroline Herschel. If you don't know who they are, you should really go to the link. I didn't know who they were either, until last week when we got to Uranus (we're working our way through the solar system this year- amazing stuff!).
The first photo is of William and Caroline with their parents and the second is of William and Caroline exploring the night sky (of course they really used a telescope, but this was a low budget film).
Stay tuned, once the children finish editing the film it may show up here on my blog.
And as long as we're talking about Uranus, did you know that scientist thought (just a few years ago) that it might rain DIAMONDS on Uranus (and Neptune). How cool is that? Now it looks like it might only rain graphite. A boon for the pencil business if you ask me.
Don't you LOVE science??? What a great way to see God's amazing creativity!
