This lesson builds on the class’s prior knowledge of the solar system and the planet’s positions. Having students use their bodies to model the day/night cycles of the Sun and Earth allows them to become these elements. Next we discuss the moon’s role in the solar system and explore the eight phases of the moon through acting out a story. Finally, a song brings it all together to deepen the learning.
