Reflection: Pacing Spatial Relations in Space-- Rotations and Revolutions - Section 4: Exploration (The Space Walk!)

 

In this lesson, I realized that acting out the moon's rotation took more time than I had originally planned.  So, I decided not to complete the headbands activity.  Instead, I moved right to the paper models in the closing.  I chose the paper models because 1) we had already had large amounts of movement together and in small groups, and 2) the paper models can be kept in the science journals as lasting reminders of rotation and orbit.

Objective: SWBAT describe patterns of the sun, earth, and moon's movement.

Big Idea: Move it! Move it! Students get up and get active as they play the roles of the sun, earth, and moon, in order to learn what causes the patterns in the sky.
