• Sun, Moon, and Stars

    Unit: Sun, Moon, and Stars: Students are introduced to objects we see in the sky. Through outdoor observations made during the day and at night, active simulations, reading, videos and discussions, students study the sun, moon and stars. Students will discover that these objects move in regular and predictable patterns that can be observed, recorded and analyzed.
    What families can do at home to help:
    • Observe the night sky and keep a log.
    • Observe shadows at different times of the day.
