I created this activity as a Tier 2 Intervention for our 8th graders. Our TEK says to Illustrate and Model- and that is just what this activity is designed to target. Seasons- students will use identity cards (and their bodies) to represent the Sun, Earth, and the 4 seasons. The first page of the activity explains how students are to use the cards to represent the seasons as Earth moves around the sun. There is a student handout included (and a key) to reinforce the model that the students illustrate kinesthetically. I created this to be easy to implement and not confusing for students. The second set of card are to demonstrate tides. Each student will be holding a card and moving around to demonstrate the locations of the tide, moon, and sun locations. A picture of the key is included on the last page.
