In our talks of outer space, aliens keep coming up. We asked some children what they thought about aliens at morning meeting and asked a small group to share some more ideas and illustrate them.
Grace: They talk like this, "bebooopbeeboopbeee".
Lou Lou: Aliens can be green or other colors. Like blue or green or purple. But no pink. All the dark colors.
Leigh: What about black?
Grace: I think if they were black they could be camouflaged in outer space.
Margaret: It’s because outer space is black. If outer space is black they would be camouflaged cause they are black too.
Joslin: If they were all white and space was black they wouldn’t be camouflaged. But if they were black and space is black they camouflaged.
Austin: They can be purple blue, or pink.
Jack: They only live on Mars.
Elle: They can live on Saturn.
Lou Lou: And the moon.
Austin: It’s too cold; they would die on Saturn.
Kian: Aliens are hard to find and they might be hard to find cause they can maybe swim to other planets. But it might be funny if they jump all the way to Earth.
Austin: They can’t do that, cause of gravity.
Grace: If they swim to a different planet they might fell and go ahhhhhhhhhhh!
Austin: What if they scream in a crater and get stuck in it?
Elle: If they could get lost in the Milky Way cause its super big and goes all over the place and they could lost their way from their home.
Kian: They can have as many eyes as they want. And they can only have socks on.
Austin: They barely have hands.
Elle: An alien might have 8 eyes like a spider.
Rowan: This alien is from the moon. It needs four hands to pick up four foods at a time. They eat pasta.
Austin: Yeah, they get pasta from earth.
Rowan: They travel to the earth, grab people's pastas. Astronauts drove their rocket ships to the moon and they snuck on board and they were driving back to earth to get some pasta.
