Over the past few weeks, the First Grade students have been studying ‘Patterns in the Sky’ for Science. Our study of the moon coincided with the Mid-Autumn Festival (also known as the Moon Festival) in China. The students learned that the part of the moon you see is called a moon phase. You see the same phases in the same order every month. Talking about the phases of the moon, inspired a fun challenge with Oreo Cookies.
The students in Grade 1 Hedstrom also read a book called ‘Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me’ By Eric Carle which inspired this artwork. Other classes prepared artwork relating to the Moon and drew constellations.
