EARTH, SUN AND MOON

In this workshop pupils benefit from the large space available in the park as they learn about the earth, sun and moon and their relative sizes, distances and movements. They will also discover how phenomena such as day and night and the phases of the moon are connected to the movements of these bodies using interactive activities in the classroom and outside in the park.

CURRICULUM LINKS:
