Mrs. Lee’s 6th grade science classes have been finding fun and unique ways to grasp various astronomical lessons. From “moon” cakes and interactive models, to edible hydrogen atoms, food has been used as an effective way to understand some rather abstract scientific concepts!

Students took a "bite" out of the moon while indulging on chocolate fondant craters, maria, and highlands. They were able to manipulate oversized black and white cookies, while showing the eight lunar phases.  They then dipped into their creative banks to find various ways to model the moon in its entirety!

Next, the class moved on to the sun where hydrogen atoms (aka marshmallows) were “fused” together to demonstrate how nuclear fusion occurs.  CLICK HERE for more pictures.
