With all these patterns in the Earth's sky figured out, we returned to the ancient artifact that also helped launch our unit. There were so many obvious patterns on the artifact that we just couldn't control sharing what we figured out! Way to go 5th grade...you'll never look at the sky the same way again!
Between both 5th grade classes, we answered the majority of questions that we asked to launch the unit! It's always a sense of accomplishment when we've figured out so much! Way to go 5th graders!
From our anchoring phenomena (a sun that never sets, photos of the moon and sun out together, and various maps of the nighttime sky), we have figured out A LOT! Our model tracker is complete!!! Way to go 5th grade!
With all our research, we decided it was time to present all our findings! Between our individual research on specific "patterns in the sky" questions we had and our group assigned constellations, we went to work! And boy, did we figure out a lot from one another!
