Moon Unit and Resources

My third grade class just started learning about the solar system. It is a favorite unit among my students year after year. They are mystified and intrigued by the happenings of the solar system. This week be begun studying the moon.

Students created beautiful posters showing the different phases of the moon.

I love reading the book "Faces of the Moon" to students while they point to the phase on their moon poster.

We also watched Bill Nye's video. Students were cracking up as they learned and reviewed important information.

After the video each student wrote 1 new fact they learned and drew a picture to go with it.

You can download my Free Moon Pack here. It contains a matching sheet, poem, cloze reading and word search. Enjoy!
