The moon journal project is a journey. Through scientific inquiry, the students are using their senses to observe what is happening in the evening outside their homes and watch the night sky with anticipation as the moon mysteriously transforms itself. They are describing and recording their observations using different mediums to document their findings. These include but are not limited to: writing/dictation, poetry, art, photography, technology. The broad range of possibility embraces all learning styles. The students are expected to record observations in their journals at least two times during the school week and once during the weekend. The preamble to the moon journal explains to parents what the expected format is and the classroom expectations. Feel free to adapt this preface to fit the needs of your classroom. I invite you to travel with your students on this journey of discovery. You don’t need to have all the answers. In fact, it’s better if you don’t and you research and learn along with your students. After all, it is the process not the product that truly matters! Bon voyage!
