Description

The Earth, Moon, and Sun – A Fourth Grade PowerPoint Introduction is a PowerPoint 4th grade level instructional presentation

It includes: a PowerPoint presentation of the text along with two editable slides that are also available in PDF format to print and issue as classwork, homework, or attach/incorporate into an interactive notebook.

The presentation includes:

· Introduction to Earth, Moon, and Sun terminology (rotation, axis, revolution, orbit, crater, phases, lunar eclipse, and solar eclipse)

· How day and night occur

· Explanation of apparent motion and shadows

· Discussion about seasons

· Apparent path of the Sun. Picture of Alaska at midday.

· How the Moon “lights up”

· Similarities and differences between the Earth and Moon. Craters explained.

· Phase changes of the Moon

· Description of lunar and solar eclipses

The last 2 slides are white-background slides used for the printables. The printables are already in PDF form in the package. The white-background pages are not included in the total pages. I include them in case you would like to change any of the data and recreate the printables.

The editableslides and printables:

· Activity one has students identifying terminology through a matching activity. Terms included are rotation, solar eclipse, meteoroid, axis, shadow, crater, apparent motion, phases, revolution, orbit, and lunar eclipse.

· Activity two has students completing a Venn Diagram comparing the similarities and differences between the Earth and the Moon.
