Sun, Earth, Moon Model Craft

Pin It

 









I thought this was such a neat idea. It simply and clearly shows you how the Earth goes around the Sun and the Moon goes around the Earth. You can easily make it with the template below. Great for a unit about space or the Moon.

Materials:

  • 1 paper plate
  • white construction paper or card stock
  • Earth and Moon cutouts from template
  • hole puncher
  • crayons
  • 2 brass fasteners
  • scissors

Directions:

  1. Go to the link below and download the template. Cut the Earth and Moon pieces from hard white paper.
  2. Color the paper plate yellow, color the Earth and Moon.
  3. Punch a hole at the end of each strip as shown and in the middle of the paper plate.
  4. Fasten the pieces together using brass fasteners.
The template is available online from NASA Blogs
It may not give you a big picture of the template, though. Alternatively, do an image search for 'sun earth moon model' and that should give you the image. Have fun.

Each device experiences various kinds of error while working. What's more, Epson printer isn't an exemption. The blunder code 0X9a is additionally a typical issue in the Epson printer. The primary explanation for this error is some unacceptable setup of the network record in the Windows working framework. At times it occurs because of the trash or impediment in the cartridge.

  6. מה זה "הארציזם"?

    HAARETZISM:

    אתר השנאה של הארץ, גזענות אנטי-יהודית, בדויות, חצי אמיתות, תומך בטרור, גזענות שווא:

    אתר "הארץ" הבלתי מהימן אשר מתחילת שנות האלפיים מגזים בשיטתיות, המציא לעתים קרובות "חדשות מזויפות" , בדה עובדות (לפעמים התנצל בצורה חלשה ורק לאחר שהשקר כבר הופץ באופן נרחב) ומצדיק ההתקפות הערביות הגזעניות האנטי - יהודיים, ומתייגים ב"גזענות" דוקא אלה שחוששים מההתקפות הגזעניות, בעצם.
    באופן כללי, "הארץ" עושה שימוש בטרמינולוגיה של מילים גדולות כמו "גזענות" ו"פשיזם" אפילו כשאינם קשורים (יש שהבהירו שזה מיועד לקליקים לפיתיון - בייט קליקס). האתר הסית שוב ושוב לאלימות. ומעל הכל, הפיץ שנאה כלפי יהודים, כולל קריקטורות שנאה מרושעות. האתר מצוטט באופן נרחב על ידי ניאו-נאצים. וכל האמור לעיל "הארץ" עסק ועוסק בפנאטיות. בקנאותו הוא אף משכתב את ההיסטוריה מחדש.

    HAARETZISM:
    Haaretz hate site, anti-Jewish racism, fabrication, half-truths, pro-terror, false Racialization:

    Since, especially, the early 2000s' unreliable Haaretz has been systematically exaggerating, often invented fake news, fabricating facts (sometimes apologizing weakly and only after the falsehood was widely disseminated) and apologetic for racist Arab attacks targeting Jews, yet slapping falsely the "racism" label exclusively on those that fear the very racist attacks. In general, using big words terminology like "racism" and "fascism" when not even related (some stated, it's intended for bait clicks). It has incited repeatedly for violence. And above all, has been spreading hatred against Jews, including vile hate cartoons. It's widely quoted by neo-Nazis. And all of the above, with a fanaticism. In its zealotry, it even rewrites history.
