I created a Cootie Catcher or Fortune Teller (depending on what your students call it) to help my students review the Texas TEK 4.8C (Observing patterns in tides, seasons, shadows, and moon phases). I thought I'd share it with all of you as well!! I hope you enjoy this free review, I know my students LOVED it and used it often!
TONIGHT......Supermoon is a spectacular sight! The upcoming supermoon - on Monday, Nov. 14 - will be especially "super" because it's the closest full moon to Earth since 1948. We won't see another supermoon like this until 2034. The moon's orbit around Earth is slightly elliptical so sometimes it is closer and sometimes it's farther away. When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth it is known as a supermoon. At perigree - the point at which the moon is closest to Earth.
Nov 14,2016 at 5 : 23 am is Super Moon and it will be the closest it's been to the Earth since 1963.So be sure to get up early and see it.It only happens every 40 or 50 yrs.Its gonna be amazing they say to see.
