Astronomers in the Making

Second graders at R.C. Waters Elementary have been busy astronomers during the month of October. Students learned about light, shadows, the sun, and the phases of the moon. In addition to the in class instruction and activities, students also completed a moon phase observation log each night at home. The observation log allowed students to witness firsthand how the moon changes as it progresses through its phases and to record their observations, just like a real scientist would do. Second graders also read a fictional mystery titled, The Missing Moon Mystery during this unit. While the story was fiction, it contained many of true and interesting facts about the moon and its phases. Be sure to ask a second grader you know if Bentley Beaver ever solved his missing moon mystery and if he was able to finally host his moon party.
