4 great idea!
This is a simple, clever idea that can be used to introduce a lot of different units. Any lesson that requires careful observation and comparisons could be introduced using this idea -- although it is particularly appropriate for rocks. The kids always love being able to eat in class, but allergies are a concern.

4 Good demo!
This is a step-by-step description of a kinesthetic method of demonstrating the relationship among the sun, Earth and moon. The inclusion of the relevant questions to be asked at each point was particularly helpful. The assessment seems to be ambitious for a sixth grade, but I am looking forward to attempting this to see if the students' understanding of the concept is strengthened.
