Instructional Ideas
  • Direct pupils to make moon observations over the course of several days—have them draw and describe what they see at a specific time of day 
  • Flip your classroom; assign the link for homework then discuss its contents at school the next day 
  • Gather additional materials about the moon that learners can browse when time permits 
Classroom Considerations
  • An ad appears short after the start of the video 
  • Video is the eighth resource in a series of 18 created to inform leaners about astronomy and space  
  • Comments and video suggestions are visible if the video is not in full-screen mode
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • Provides real-world pictures alongside computer images to thoroughly relay information
  • Highlights key terms using bright, bold font
Cons
  • The host is a fast talker, therefore, enable closed captioning, pause, and replay as you see fit
