Sun an Moon Fun
We have been combining science with writing and have had a lot of fun!  The students completed a Venn diagram comparing the sun and the moon.  Then they wrote compare/contrast stories.  Here are some examples:

This project sparked a few other stories like "Comparing My Mom and Dad" and "Comparing Apes to Chimps!"  I love the first grade imagination!  Next, students completed a Moon-"Can, Has, Is" click here to download, and a Sun-"Can, Has, Is" click here to download.  Then, using words from the "Can, Has, Is" charts, the students wrote cinquain poems about the sun and the moon download flow chart here.  After the students filled out their flow charts, I typed the poems for them.  See the project below~
