6
Purpose
  • As a result of seeing the Moon nearly every day
    and watching it appear to change shape and move,
    students are naturally drawn to the mysteries of
    the Moon. This is why teaching students about
    the Moon is a critical aspect in science. Aside
    from our planet and sun, the Moon is the next
    most common and referenced part of our solar
    system.

7
Objectives
  • The Student will be able to describe the
    relationship between the Earth, Sun, and Moon in
    writing.
  • TSWBAT complete a graphic organizer
  • TSWBAT create a Moon model

8
Essential Questions
  • What causes the different phases of the Moon?
  • Does the Moon produce its own light?
  • Why do the Moon phases repeat in a cycle?

9
Enduring Understandings
  • There are different phases of the moon.
  • The phases of the moon repeat in a sequencing
    cycle.
  • The relationship between the Earth, the Sun, and
    the Moon causes the different phases.

10
Students Tasks
  • Pre-assessment sheet and review
  • Vocabulary on the board
  • Reading the text
  • Creating the moon models
  • Drawing the moon phases
  • Modeling the relationship between the Earth, Sun,
    and Moon
  • Post-assessment sheet and review

11
Assessments
  • Diagnostic
  • Phases of the Moon pre-assessment sheet
  • Formative
  • Phases of the Moon drawing sheet and modeling the
    relationship between the Earth, Moon, and Sun
  • Summative
  • Phases of the Moon post-
  • assessment sheet and review

Modification Table
Tasks SMART Board activity                     Creating a moon and drawing the phases Allows students to practice drawing the different phases of the moon.             Provides students with a hands on representation of the moon and how the different phases are created. The students are able to put their new knowledge of the moon phases to the test, while still under the supervision of the teacher. The students are given a more concrete example of the moon phases by creating their own moon and spinning it to create
