Earth – Sun – Moon System unit begins!

Quizlet flash cards


We’ve started our new unit on the Earth – Sun – Moon System!  Learning Targets this week will include the orbit order of planets in our solar system, and a sense of our place (and the size) of the universe.  It’s a great time to talk with your child about space & to share your thoughts about this very “big” topic.

Also, ask to see your child’s Science Journal.  It is ordered by topic, and each page has a specific item assigned to it.  Notice the increasing level of rigor, and watch for the student response pages which will be the left side page (evens).

Also, sometime next week, I will assign students to share their journals.  Please take a few moments and respond.  It means a lot to kids (as you well know) to have someone other than the teacher appreciate and comment on their work.  Look for content as well as neatness, creativity and your child’s enthusiasm for the topic.


Thank you for your support!
