There's little that is more fun to learn about than the solar system. The moon specifically lights a child's face with imagination and possibilities. The moon is part of our weather. It also affects the ocean's tides and is an integral part of storytelling and folk lore. Why not take this beautiful celestial body and spend a full day, or even a week, learning all about the moon?
Is the moon made of cheese? How many people have stood on the moon? What does a moon rock feel like? Will I ever go to the moon? Why does the moon change shape and what is a lunar eclipse? These are just a few of the questions your young students may have for you.
There's so much to talk about when it comes to the moon that it can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Do you start with the phases of the moon? What about the lunar landings? Or maybe you start with how the moon affects the ocean's tides. Let the resources at Teacher Planet help you out.
Use the lesson plans, activities, worksheets and clip art to help you bring the moon to your classroom. You can also find an abundance of resources to help you really delve into teaching everything there is to know about the moon.
