Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  June 3, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Does this unit cover the GPS(Georgia Performance Standards) science standards S2E1 and S2E2?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 4, 2013Yvonne Dixon answered:
Thank you for your question. Yes, it does teach those standards. I use the GPS as well for this unit and made sure they were covered when designing these activities. Here is a copy/paste from my contents:1. Students will investigate the position of the sun
and moon to show patterns throughout the year.
*Students will explore the position of the sun in relation to a fixed object on earth at various times of the day.
*Students will determine how shadows change through the day by using a sundial.
*Students will relate the length of the day and night to the change in the seasons.
*Students will observe and chart the shape of the moon over a period of time (a month).
2. Students will investigate and understand the reasons for seasons.
*Students will explore the relationship between the earth and sun and why seasons occur and change.
3. Students will investigate and understand that
stars have different sizes, brightness, and
patterns.
*Students will describe the physical attributes of stars. *Students will research and explore stars and constellations.
Thank you again!-Yvonne :)

On  September 7, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I just purchased your Sun, Moon, and Stars unit. The titles on the pages Let's Explore the Stars and Let's Explore the Moon did not show up when I printed them. There is a large black line where the title of the story should be.

Thanks,
Lesa Bozeman

On  September 9, 2012Yvonne Dixon answered:
Hi Lesa! Thank you for your purchase. This problem sounds like it is your Adobe Reader. When it is not updated it can lead to problems with printing pdf documents (typical problem...black lines). Please try to update your Adobe and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't, let me know so I can help you with the tech dept. here at TpT. Thank you!-Yvonne :)
n/a
On  July 24, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Is the "The Sun, The Moon, The Earth, and The Stars Science Resource Unit" an actual unit? What I mean is, is it organized where it has Lesson 1 talk about and do this, Lesson 2....and so forth or is it just a bunch of resources on the sun, moon, earth, and stars?

Thanks,
Erin K.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 24, 2012Yvonne Dixon answered:
Hi Erin! Thank you for your question. It actually is more of a collection of ideas and resources for you to use when teaching this topic. I didn't list out lesson plans day by day if that is what you are thinking. Thanks so much!-Yvonne Dixon
n/a
On  December 15, 2011,  Buyer asked:
I am starting my student teaching assignment in January and am trying to get some materials ready. Are the materials in this unit appropriate for Kindergarten? I saw most of the comments were those that had used this for second graders.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 16, 2011Yvonne Dixon answered:
Hi Leah, I think you could adapt most of the "activities" for all ages. The worksheets are mainly for older children but we have K teachers that use the seasons and other activities in this packet with their children. They just adapt to the level of the students. Second graders can handle the activities more independently where K-1 would need more guidance. I would not use most of the worksheets in this packet with K. Thanks!-Yvonne
n/a
On  November 27, 2011,  Lana K. asked:
Are you having a sale? Every time I put a packet in the cart I get the original price. Just thought I'd ask because maybe the sale is over. Not sure. Thanks so much. Lana
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 27, 2011Yvonne Dixon answered:
Yes...everything in my store is 20% off today and tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know. Let me check on it and see what the problem is. I know I clicked that packet as a sale item. Thank you!!!
***I just went and checked and it is showing on sale from my end. I will email TPT and see if they are having any trouble. Thank you!!!
