We have started the next unit on Space! We are studying the relationship between the Earth, Moon, and Sun. First we have started with the phases of the moon. We watched a great video on BrainPop (Check it out! Just sign in with the WMS username/password and search "Moon Phases"!). We took notes from the video that should be in your child's science notebook. I have also posted the PowerPoint presentations for the Moon Phases and the Earth's tilt under the Assignments and Resources tab for some extra help. There's also a pretty interesting article from DiscoveryEd about the phases of the moon posted with those presentations.
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
