Earth, moon and sun experiments

Discussion in 'Primary' started by milliebear, Sep 11, 2011.

  1. A bit more guidance as to what you're after might be helpful.
     
  2. For the sun then there's always the looking at a shadow over the course of a day to see how it moves. Other than that, have a look at astroventure (have to google it as I can't remember the site) and they have a world builder. Kids get to design a new planet for humans and then launch it into the solar system. We did this last year by looking at what makes the earth special first then designing a planet and predicting the outcome before it's launched.
     
  3. We did this experiment in our Year 4 class about the craters on the moon. Make sure if you do it though that your children are wearing aprons, as it can get a bit messy.
