Reflection: Unit Planning The Sun, Facts and Figures - Section 1: Instructional Notes

 

Although I intended to teach this as the 4th lesson in the unit, we had some unfortunate rainy days with cloud cover.  So, we actually completed this lesson prior to observing the sun.  I wanted them to observe first, since their observations should be the basis of their knowledge.  But, completing the lessons in reverse actually served to increase their excitement about the upcoming "sunglasses" day observing the sun!
