Fly Me To The Moon (Giveaway!)

"One Small Step For Man, 
One Giant Leap For Learning"

I just finished a small two-week unit on the moon and had a blast with it! By 4th grade my students already knew the moon phases so we did a quick review with Oreo cookies. . .that was a yummy Monday!

The kids had a lot of questions so we read about the Challenger and about craters. After much discussion we evolved into re-creating the moon's surface in the classroom - craters and all.

In my teaching impact craters lesson in small groups students were given a pan with moon surface (flour!) some bouncy balls and rulers. Students measured the impact of asteroids on the moon's surface and worked to problem solve some questions. It was a messy method of learning and everyone loved it!

I've added my Impact Craters Demo to my TPT Store. . .check it out!

If you want to score a copy of the lab for free, follow my blog and leave a comment with your e-mail, I'll pick a random winner on Thursday!

While you wait. . .fly me to Facebook!
