Welcome to your class homepage!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
For the week of April 10-14, 2000, we will be starting a new unit. Our new unit is titled "LOST IN SPACE". We are going to explore the solar system. Students, you will gain a better understanding of the sun and other stars, the moon, the nine planets, and the earth and its place in the solar system.
Our tentative schedule is as follows:
On Monday we will have an overview of the unit and discuss how the sun is the center of the solar system.
On Tuesday we will discuss how the sun is a star that produces light, energy, and heat.
On Wednesday we will name the nine planets that revolve around the sun. We will make mobile illustrating the nine planets in the order from closest to farthest from the sun.
On Thursday we will discuss how the moon revolves around the earth creating the moon's phases. Students will be responsible for creating a "Moon Watch" homework sheet.
On Friday we will discuss how the earth spins to create night and day. Students will make a model of the earth, the moon, and sun that will demonstrate how we have night and day.
We will have a very fun and exciting week ahead of us. I hope you are excited about all of the wonderful activities planned.
I'll see you in class on Monday,
