Instructional Ideas
  • Have the video ready to play in full screen prior to learners enter the classroom to avoid seeing inappropriate comments or related video suggestions 
  • Display finished products at Open House or Back-to-School Night 
  • Direct pupils to keep their moon puzzle in an envelope, allow them to play when they finish a task early
Classroom Considerations
  • Video begins with a short ad 
  • Requires a variety of craft materials 
  • Duration reflects the amount of time to complete the video, not the activity 
  • First resource in a series of 18 astronomy and space videos
  • This video is hosted on YouTube
Pros
  • A puppet side-kick and a colorful studio enhance visual engagement 
  • Encourages hands-on participation and learning through play
Cons
  • The host speaks quickly—enable closed captioning, or pause and rewind as needed
