Easy Sundial Paper Plate Craft. That's a fun idea and would make a great homeschool project getting them to plot the sun moving the shadow round.

Constellation Keychain~ Even if you don't teach science, find a way to weave this project into your curriculum. It's that cool!

FREEBIE: Create your own model to show how the Earth orbits the Sun while the moon travels around the Earth

Students will create this diagram showing the phases of the moon. They can use oreos to create this. They can then record the same diagram with markers and eat the oreos, if allowed.

This video comes straight from NSTA (National Science Teaching Association) and gives a fun lesson on how you can teach the phases of the moon. NSTA has their own YouTube channel where you can find tons of different activities and demonstrations that are great visuals for students while learning. It's a great resource for teachers to use if you're struggling with a topic in your classroom. It helps to look at the lesson from a different perspective.

This video is great when talking about the orbit of the Earth and the rotation that makes up one day. Also how the sun is part of that day length.
