Mrs. Smit’s Classroom Edit display name

I have been teaching 6th grade science in my public school for the past 4 years and my students are always eager to learn. They are especially excited about their learning when it comes to the study of astronomy, but they often have a hard time understanding the relationships between the objects in space because it is so hard to visualize things they cannot see firsthand. Having a concrete model will help demonstrate the position of the sun, earth, and moon during events like eclipses, spring and neap tides, and the different moon phases, and will allow students to have a greater understanding of some of the most fundamental concepts of astronomy.
