This can be a fun activity to use for my Unit lesson plan because food almost always focuses students' attentions. The cream on the oreo can represent what moon phase looks like what, and we can discuss the moon phases in class and relate it to weather patterns (ocean currents, etc.) I did this last fall in the classroom and the kids loved it!
Influenced by Native American folktales, this fascinating story deals with bullying, self-confidence, and understanding the phases of the moon. After the sun insults and bullies her, the moon gets very upset and disappears - much to the chagrin of rabbits who miss their moonlight romps. With the help of her friends, the moon gains more self-confidence each day until she is back to her full size.

Make yourself into a constellation... I would have all the kids do this and then hang them up to make our own starry sky! I would definitely use some glitter. This is a fantastic illustration for God's Promise to Abraham using the stars in the sky to demonstrate the number of people that will follow.
Make yourself into a constellation... oh this made me gasp I love this idea!

Here is a simple idea for an informative assessment: Rotate/Revolve Model Make this simple model to demonstrate the differences between rotation and revolution. Thread a practice golf ball onto a pipe cleaner. Twist the pipe cleaner closed, to make a loop. To show rotation: spin the ball. To show revolution: slide the ball around the pipe cleaner.
