Reply To: Module 2 – The Moon, the Earth and the Sun

Alyson O Rourke

    For this lesson, I would focus on the Moon. I would start out by eliciting the children’s prior knowledge on the moon. I would then get the children to draw what the moon looks like. Next up, I would show the children a video about Neil Armstrong and the First Moon Landing. I would question the children on the events of the video. I would then link this back to the children’s original drawing of the moon. After this, I would divide the class into groups to sequence the First Moon Landing using cards. I would then call upon the children to describe their sequence of events using their own words. In a follow up lesson, I would explore the properties of the moon. There are many links for learning when teaching about the Moon.
