Far-Out Science Projects About Earth's Sun and Moon

Series: Rockin' Earth Science Experiments

By Robert Gardner

Careful observation of the sun and moon can answer many questions we have about our planet. What causes day and night? Why do the seasons change? What causes the changing shape of the moon? How can you tell time by watching shadows from the sun? Robert Gardner guides young students in their observations, using simple science experiments. Detailed explanations follow the experiments to explain the science used in each experiment, along with unique ideas for your own science fair project. Supports the National Science Education Standards for K–4 Earth and Space Science.

". . . these earth science activities encourage detailed and sometimes long-term observation, careful planning, and consideration of core scientific concepts. Although explanations of the scientific principles in each activity are provided, they enhance rather than replace the experiments themselves . . ."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2007

"These projects may not be dazzling enough to excite science-fair veterans, but they may be just right for students with limited experience looking for projects that are fairly interesting and manageable."

School Library Journal, August 2007

"The activities are engaging and reasonable for third and fourth graders . . . the book is a worthwhile addition of science activities to a library or classroom."

Science Books & Films, July/August 2007

"A simple glossary, some references and websites for further research, and an index make this book ideal to support independent research as well as a great source of classroom activities."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, April 24, 2007

"The text is . . . straightforward and clear."

The Lorgnette, May 2008

"These experiments are well developed and clearly explained with the clarification for the questions posed given in the following pages, and can be done with ordinary household materials . . . The book is designed for a younger audience than most of Gardner's books but is as carefully set out. It is clearly written, with many of the formulas and scientific terms used being explained in context."
