Our first stop in figuring out the answers to our questions was focusing on movement...movement of so many things. We see the moon moving, the sun moving, and we came in with some background knowledge about the earth moving, too! So we watched some videos to establish some things, and then set out to build our own models at home!
After agreeing that the sun doesn't move, and that the earth and moon do, students were challenged to figure out why we see the moon during the day then, using materials they had at home! Students used FlipGrid to submit their thinking alongside their models! here are some pictures of their work!
From here, we agreed on the following, and with student input, Mrs. Brinza put together a video!
Next steps...more figuring out about how the movement of the earth affects shadows. Yup, you heard that right! If the earth is what moves, then we have to leave the sun still!
