SUPERMOON extra credit! SUPERMOON! This weekend!
Supermoon Extra Credit
An early morning PSA assignment (10 points)
When: Sunday December 3, 2017
On Sunday Dec 3, 2017- Monday dec 4, 2017 we will experience a supermoon. The question is, what is a supermoon and what is so special about it?
Your task: Research at what time the supermoon takes is going to take place. Then, weather depending*, head out in search of the supermoon with an electronic device that can take video with. (If you would rather sleep during this time, then state the time the supermoon occurs as well as the time you are making the PSA). With both you and the supermoon (or at least the full moon) in view, create a PSA to explain to middle school students what a supermoon is and what is so special about it. The knowledge you share must be your own summary of what you researched. Go beyond just defining a supermoon. Explain why they occur, how often they occur and when we will get to view the next supermoon. Limit your PSA to 2 minutes then email it to Ms Benjamin at email@example.com.
* Quite often NASA or another organization will stream images of the supermoon. If you are not able to see the supermoon outside, this is the next option.
But, what if you are not able to make a PSA? Create a class poster sharing what you would share in the PSA
Due date: Sunday December 10, 2017
