I am a first-year, fifth-grade teacher in Tennessee, and we are fixing to begin our unit on Earth and Space Science.
One of our standards is - 5.ESS1.4. Explain the cause and effect relationship between the positions of the sun, earth, and moon and resulting eclipses, position of constellations, and appearance of the moon.
Is there a good online simulation that will help my students to understand the positions of the sun, earth, and moon and the eclipses that result from their positions? Bonus points if it is free!
Any resources, videos, etc. on teaching fifth grade science standards relating to earth and space science would be appreciated!
