phases of the Moon. They used Oreo cookies to make each phase of the Moon
as it revolves around Earth.
Students continued working on selecting a Mars research
We completed the size and scale unit with the unit assessment.
We started the phases of the moon with the phases lecture.
Students watched Galaxies and the Expanding Universe and
completed a worksheet.
Students completed a size and scale activity - In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
Students mapped the distance to the thirteen brightest stars, using the
assigned scale on each map.
Both classes completed a size and scale activity - How
Big, How Far, How Old (images). Students were given a set of images and had to classify them. For each part of the activity (big, far, old), students used different sets of cards. They also had to answer two questions in each section.
Students completed a constellations activity - Straw Stars. Students cut
straws to different lengths to represent the distance to the stars in the Big
