Here, Kiran of the 3rd Grade shows of his drawing of the moon!

Here Sumathi, of the 3rd Grade shows off her drawing! When asked if she liked the assignment, she said: "Yes! I like to draw".

This Tuesday, the children of the third grade learned about the shapes of the moon.
They discovered these different shapes by drawing the moon in their science notebooks. The black side of the green ball is the side of the moon we always see. The children had to draw what they saw of the ‘black’ side of the moon: a hole circle, a half circle, nothing, … Later on, we gave these drawings the right names: full moon, first quarter moon, last quarter moon, new moon.
