Engaging Students in Science
Last year about this time we started our science unit on the solar system, now this is not my favorite subject, (as teachers we all have units that we prefer over others). So I turned to one of my favorite places for help http://pinterest.com/ yes I have become a Pinterest addict. Here is an activity that I found, it is a great hands on learning experience for my students to help engage them in science.
Phases of the Moon
|Dawson and Dillon started by coloring a globe to represent the earth|
|Then came more coloring and planning as we added the sun|
|Then it was time for the cookies, with a few extra for eating of course!|
|Then it was time to label the phases, not the easiest task.|
|So proud of our work and is that a cookie in your mouth?|
