Product Description
Talking about astronomy with 5th grade students never fails to bring up many misconceptions. Students struggle with the abstract concepts discussed in the space unit and many teachers struggle with making those concepts more concrete and applicable to the lives of their students. This learning cycle provides students with an opportunity to explore what an everyday activity would look like on each of these celestial bodies. This learning cycle is ideal for a diverse classroom. Small groups and peer partners allow stronger students to assist those who may struggle. The site also provides the same articles at a level one where they are shortened and simplified for developing readers. By approaching the characteristics of different locations students also consider what is needed for life, how topography can affect people, and measurements skills through understanding the distance traveled. The same activity could be tied into a language arts lesson on comparative writings and would lead to an excellent Social Studies discussion on why certain parts of our Earth were settled earlier than others.
