Let's Celebrate the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year! In this course we will learn about the science of the science behind the solstices, equinoxes, and seasons. At the winter solstice the Sun travels the shortest path through the sky, and that day therefore has the least daylight and the longest night. Children will begin by sharing their prior knowledge and we will discuss everything we already know about winter. Using a second camera I will model for children the Earths...
Students will learn why the winter solstice occurs using vocabulary words such as, orbit, axial tilt, hemisphere, equator, solstice, vernal and autumnal equinox.
Ms. Nora has been teaching children about the science of the winter solstice for many years both in the public and virtual school setting. She has her Masters Degree in Special Education and therefor has become adept at breaking down complex concepts for young audiences through hands on learning, storytelling and play.
There is no homework for this class. Materials will be provided after class to review and reinforce the learning at home.
Paper, crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The NASA website and the book The Shortest Day by Susan Cooper provide source material for the curriculum. These resources have helped me gain knowledge but will not be used in class. Students will be provided with handouts that have been designed by me and are a part of my personal curriculum from The Montessori ReStore.
