First Grade

I am a long-term substitute teacher for a first grade class at Millbrook Elementary School.  I have 14 students in my class.  This lesson is one part of a unit of study about objects in the sky. 

Objects in the Sky: Sun, Earth, and Moon

This lesson is presenting that the sun, moon, and stars have properties, locations, and movements that can be observed and described. My objective is that my students will be able to observe and describe the relationships between the sun, moon, and Earth. My students will also learn that the sun is a star and is the source of heat and light for Earth.
