The Sun, the Earth, and the Moon

Earlier this week we went outside for science. Students worked in groups of three to replicate the movements of the moon and the earth. One student was the sun, another student orbited around the sun, and the third student orbited around the earth. We also created a scale model using a soccer ball as the sun and a popcorn kernel as the earth. We found that "space" is a good name, because there sure is a lot of it out there!
