PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A colorful, fun, hands-on, and, most importantly, MEANINGFUL graphic organizer that all your students will love! The cutting, folding, drawing, and coloring they do will engage their minds, allowing what they read, listen to, and write down to really sink in (that's not a bad thing).

Students create a 3-door graphic organizer that summarizes the three of the main cycles of earth- day and night, year, and the seasons. On the outside of each door, they summarize the cause with one word ("rotation", "revolution", "tilt") as well as a drawing depicting what it is. Then on the inside (where the learning really happens) we'll define what that word means and write a few key statements. And even though we're doing 3 different cycles- day and night, year, and seasons- they're all basic introductions, so it won't feel overdone at the end.

The nice thing about this lesson is that it simplifies the causes of earth's day and night, year, and seasons. And the reason for each actually is simple, and can be summarized in a key statement or two. That's a good thing, because day and night, year, and seasons are topics that some students might initially classify as too difficult to understand.

Key terms- day and night, rotation, spin, sun, year, revolution, seasons, tilt
