Sun, Moon, and Earth Systems vocabulary notes
Powerpoint I use to introduce the vocabulary of the Sun, Moon, and Earth Systems with my 6th grade classes.

Vocabulary words and definitions include
1. Rotation
2. Orbit
3. Revolution
4. Eclipse (with short youtube video)
5. Solstice
6. Equinox (with short youtube video)
7. Season (with short youtube video)
8. Gravitational force (with short youtube video)

Each definition has a sentence that uses the word for the student to copy down.

Also included is a student note sheet for vocabulary squares, where they must copy the word and definition (provided by the powerpoint) and on their own write a sentence using the word, and draw a diagram or give an example of the word.

Several of the slides have links to videos on youtube to support the word.
