The Interplay of the Sun, Earth and Moon Unit Plan

Teach Starter Publishing
8 x lessons | Suitable for years: 3

This Earth and Space Sciences unit addresses the celestial bodies of the sun, Earth and moon. It explores their sizes, shapes, positions and movements and the interactions between them.

It consists of 7 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

An assessment task for monitoring student understanding of the unit objectives is included and will require an additional lesson.

Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to add to a learning portfolio. These can also be used to assess students’ understanding of the unit objectives.

    I plan to teach these activities in term 3. I liked the lesson sequences and will add stem lessons in the middle of the unit. Once more, thank you for an excellent unit on Earth, Sun and Moon.
