A Moon with a View

Third graders explore the rotation of Earth and the moon. In this solar system lesson plan, 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.

Lesson Planet has helped me find new ways to present information to my students. It's nice to have fresh ideas.
