Discuss all the topics about the moon - its phases and eclipses. Assign the students to observe the phases of the moon each night, and let them draw how the moon looked during each phase. Let them indicate the time and date when each phase occurred.
- The Planets and the Solar System
Provide information about the solar system, through either a video or a visit to a planetarium. Afterwards, assign the students to make a model of the solar system.
You may present a video or some useful websites to teach the components, shape, size and other pertinent information about the Earth. Then, let the students make a model of the Earth by using a variety of materials, such as clay or paper (papier-mâché). The models are then presented to the class, and the reporters share their insights about the Earth.
Discuss what makes up the Earth’s atmosphere and other related topics such as weather, climate, and humidity. Then, let the students deepen their understanding on the topics by doing an experiment in measuring humidity.
Provide materials so that the students learn more about the concept of the water cycle.
