Product Description
Get your students thinking critically with this lesson that has them comparing the physical characteristics of the moon to the physical characteristics of Earth. In the first lesson, students brainstorm about the earth and the moon, then use the characteristic cards to create a Venn Diagram. In the performance portion, they again compare at a higher level by using reference material to add to their charts.
