PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Moon Bundle Unit is a great choice for a one to two week long unit all about the Moon. It includes every resource that I have involving the moon including moon size, moon phases, lunar eclipses and solar eclipses!

I created a 96 slide power point presentation with great animations to help your students understand all of these concepts about the moon, and this is not your average power point! You and your students will love the animations in the power point, and it will guide your instruction throughout the 6 lesson unit:

Lesson 1: How is The Moon different From A Star?
-16 PPT slides addressing moon and star formation, natural light from stars versus reflective light from the Moon, and proximity from Earth and how that affects our view of the Moon and stars.
-5 E Style Lesson Plan
- Two Foldable Options: moon vs. star vs. planet (or) moon vs. star (you will only use one)
-Star Size Comparison: Center Activity Worksheet or homework

Lesson 2: How does the Earth and the Moon's position impact our view of the moon?
-20 PPT slides focusing on moon phases and why we see the moon a little bit differently every day.
-5 E Style Lesson Plan
-Moon Phases Interactive Guide/Organizer to diagram the moon's position around the Earth during each phase
-Visual Albedo Center Activity/Worksheet or homework - math integrated comparing decimals and learning more about reflective light

Lesson 3: What are the observable changes of the Moon throughout the lunar cycle?
-15 PPT slides focusing on waxing and waning, and also explaining more about the moon phases. This lesson also discusses perspective and how that can also change our view of the Moon.
-5 E Lesson Plan
- Moon Phases Flow Map

Lesson 4: What phase will the Moon be in 15 days from now?
-5 PPT slides helping students through this extending thinking concept. Students will draw the moon in its current phase and then use their background knowledge to decide what phase the moon will be in 15 days from now.

Lesson 5: Lunar Eclipse
-16 PPT slides with great animations showing what causes a lunar eclipse and why there are three different types of lunar eclipses: penumbral, partial, and total.
-5 E Lesson Plan
-Lunar and Solar Eclipse diagram handout
-Triple Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the three different types of lunar eclipses.

Lesson 6: Solar Eclipse
-22 PPT slides with excellent animations showing what causes the four types of solar eclipses: partial, total, annular and hybrid.
-5 E Lesson Plan
-Solar Eclipse illustration map for each type of solar eclipse
-Eclipses Review worksheet/center activity printable

This unit also comes with:
-Two Assessments (Moon Phases and Size to use after lesson 4) and (Eclipse Assessment to use after lesson 6)
-Three Student Learning Maps for vocabulary acquisition so students will have a vessel to take notes on for the lessons
-Three writing prompts that can be used any time after lesson two as a center activity or classwork

You and your students will love this unit bundle. It is by far my best deal for my moon lessons as you are getting 6 lessons for the price of 4! I know you will enjoy it!
