Science Shorts: Taking a Look at the Moon
Leager, Craig R.
Science and Children, v45 n3 p50-52 Nov 2007
The communication skills of reading and writing go hand in hand with science as natural partners for fostering students' understandings of the world. The similarities that exist between reading and writing strategies and science-process skills add depth to instruction when these subject areas are brought together. In the following unit of study, students use science-process skills as they observe and record changes in the Moon's appearance. Their growing knowledge of the Moon and its phases is strengthened through reading and writing strategies. (Contains 1 figure and 5 resources.)
