Well...we are actually going there. Use the links in the attachment to explore, learn and take notes on the moon. Remember to think about gravity, orbits and the effect the moon has on the earth.
Today, we began working on the seasons posters. Students must show their understanding of the cause of the seasons with text and a diagram.
We are looking at what creates the seasons on Earth. One common misunderstanding is that the distance of the Earth and the Sun is the reason. We have spent the last couple of days looking at data to that proves that distance does not matter. Rather, it is the tilt of the Earth and the ever-changing orientation of the Earth in relation to the sun.
