On Friday, I brought some artifacts around our unit on Space. Right now, I am building background knowledge around the standard: Earth is part of the solar system, which includes the Sun, Moon and other bodies that orbit the Sun in predictable patterns that lead to observable paths of objects in the sky as seen from Earth. We have been watching videos and reading books about the Moon, then the Sun and now 'other bodies' and collecting our questions as we Stop, Think and React to what we are reading or viewing.

|Student moon questions.|
|Students Stop, Think, React to information they|
find in videos and books
(from Comprehension and Collaboration text.)
Students will engage in a mini inquiry as they focus in on a particular question that they or someone else in class has asked. Again, I want to see what I can do to connect what I have done in science to what I can do in math.
