Earth’s Place in the Universe Interactive Organizers for an interactive science notebooks for earth space unit. This 221 page resource is aligned to the Next Generation Middle School Earth and Space Science Standards
Last year, I started a new Space Club program at four middle schools. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I searched the web for ideas and curriculum to implement. I soon became excited to find great resources like NASA and TeachEngineering
This interactive science notebook includes information and graphic organizers for the water cycle, weather, and climate. Earth's Systems Weather and Climate Unit Interactive Organizers contains everything you need to create interactive science notebooks.
Create your own model to show how the Earth orbits the Sun while the moon travels around the Earth. Great manipulative to help explain the concept. Identify and describe characteristics of the sun, Earth and moon as familiar objects in the solar system.
This is a very useful way to help the students understand and be able to map out the orbit and relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun. This will help when transitioning into discussing the seasons.
