Day and Night - Explanation For Kids

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.

Phases of the moon, this helps the students understand while making this chart, what they look like. Science standards: 4. The Physical Setting, A. Universe, Grade 4: The patterns of stars in the sky stay the same, although they appear to move across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different seasons.

The EPA has tons of lessons and activities about air, climate change, ecosystems, energy, health, water, and reduce, reuse, recycle. I've already found 6 that match what my students are learning about next week! I also found that the EPA offers grants to groups/school districts for environmental education. Wish I'd known that before the deadline.
