BPY Goes to the Moon and Back 

The BPY third graders’ moon studies culminated with Moon Morning this past week. They started by modeling the sun/moon/earth system to figure out why the shape of the moon changes. After figuring out the regular changing shapes of the moon, students realized the pattern is predictable. Investigations continued to other questions like—how are craters formed, how high can I jump and what is my weight on the moon, and how are moon rocks formed? Students saw real lunar samples, borrowed from NASA. Students also enjoyed a planetarium visit to the school.
