Want your students to learn about the characteristics of the sun, earth and moon while still engaging in higher level thinking and group discussions?
With this activity students will work collaboratively and engage in discussions about the characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Basically the opposite of "Two truths and a lie"...students will have to identify the correct description in a chart with characteristics of the sun, earth, and moon. (Let's call it two lies and a truth!)
This activity is engaging, interactive, and allows you take the role of facilitator in your classroom.
