A Moon with a View

Third graders explore the rotation of Earth and the moon. In this solar system lesson, 3rd graders participate in an Earth and moon simulation in which part of the class "becomes" the sun, while other children represent the moon by rotating from chair to chair around the earth. Students complete drawings and notes about the activity in their Science Journal.
