Resource Description

A full lesson plan for teaching Grade 5-7s about the Phases of the Moon using the free coding tool, Scratch.

Learners will utilise several thinking routines as well as develop their own Scratch animation to develop their understanding of this phenomenon. This document includes links to all required resources, a parent/teacher training page and student handouts in both PDF and .docx formats.

This lesson is CAPS aligned for Grade 7 Natural Science but can be taught and understood from a Grade 5 level.

Here is the accompanying YouTube video where I explain each of the steps:
