Product Description

This huge resource is meant to fully address the Utah SEEd 6.1.1

Develop and use a model of the Sun-Earth-Moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the Sun and Moon, and seasons. Examples of models could be physical, graphical, or conceptual.

Students will investigate with hands-on labs and physical models, they will create conceptual models and they will read informational text about solar and lunar eclipses, lunar phases and seasons.  Students will understand that the patterns of movement between the Earth, Sun and moon have a specific relationship to lunar phases, solar and lunar eclipses and they will understand that the tilt of the Earth is the reason we have seasons. This resource uses phenomena to engage students in scientific exploration.

This resource is full of engaging activities.  It includes an informative slide show that gives students an overview of the patterns of movement in the solar system, particularly the Sun, Earth and Earth’s moon.

After the slideshow overview there are three distinct mini units:

Lunar Phases

Seasons

Solar and Lunar Eclipses

If all pages are used at the suggested schedule, this unit will take about 19 days to complete. It includes 87 pages and slides.

This resource includes a slide show, four pages of informational text passages, interactive notebook inserts, response pages, answer keys and quizzes in the end of year testing format.  

This resource is especially designed to meet the Utah SEEd for 6th grade, from the Utah Core.

Students will use the following Utah SEEd science and engineering practices:

  • Science and Engineering Practices used by student:
  • Asking questions
  • Developing and using models
  • Planning and carrying out investigations
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Constructing explanations
