The Sun, Earth and Moon

Project | Grade 6 | English

Suggested Levels: Grades 4-7

This project introduces upper elementary students to the relationship between the sun, Earth and the moon.

Through a video, students are presented with concepts such as day and night and the phases of the moon. Guiding questions are provided for each expert group to initiate their exploration of either the sun, or Earth, or the moon.

Students are expected to conduct research and to determine what is the most important information they would like to share with their peers.

Students will have the opportunity to share what they already know in small group discussion.

Expert groups are formed early on in this project so that students can explore either the sun, or Earth, or the moon in greater depth.

Students will be able to determine the way in which they wish to share their project (media, art, drama etc.).

Included in this project:

  • 1 Video

  • Series of images, (sun, moon, Earth)
