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


Ideally, we would begin our section of the unit about the moon by observing the moon during the daytime.  Unfortunately, we have had a string of cloudy days!  So, I moved this lesson to the beginning of the moon section.  You will see that my students are not fully in agreement about the moon being out during the day, which would be taken care of if the lessons were taught in the intended order.
