Sunlight Necklaces

Third graders review the placement and role of the sun in the solar system. Using beads, they create a necklace which they can use to identify the amount of sunlight is being illuminated. In groups, they record observations on the plants in the school that need sunlight. To end the lesson, they discuss how to protect themselves from the rays of the sun.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
