"The Earth, the Sun and the Moon" is an interactive presentation that is specifically designed for use with an interactive whiteboard to support the teaching of science unit 5E of the National Curriculum. It also includes additional material for science units 1D, 3F and 6E, and a poem "Gravity and Motion" that can be used for literacy.

The presentation makes learning about our home planet and the universal forces that govern it simple and interesting.

Five questions are the catalyst for guiding you through the process of learning about the sizes and positions of these celestial bodies, the forces that make them orbit each other and the effect that the movement of these massive objects has on our lives.

Features include: an interactive screen that demonstrates the force of gravity as the Earth attracts a ball from all angles; the four seasons changing as the Earth rotates about the sun; an interactive animated version of Newton's cannon; Day and Night with adjustable synchronised analogue and digital clocks, including AM/PM indicator and selectable 12/24 hour mode; interactive animations of the phases of the moon and many more.

The presentation can be run full screen or optionally in it's own window. Although primarily intended for delivery using an interactive whiteboard the production can also be used individually by the students on PC's or laptops.

Science Unit 5E specific coverage
  • The shape of the Sun, Earth and Moon.
  • The Relative sizes of the Sun, the Earth and Moon.
  • The Sun moves across the sky from East to West because the Earth is rotating.
  • The Earth spins on its axis every 24 hours and this is what causes day and night.
  • The Earth rotates about the sun once a year causing the four seasons.
  • The Moon orbits the Earth approximately every 29 days, which is the reason for the phasing of the Moon's appearance.
  • The relative positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon produces shadows on the Earth during eclipses.
