Students study moon with cookies

Chardon Middle School students in Jackie Brown’s seventh-grade science class have been learning the phases of the moon.

To facilitate student learning about the moon phases, Ms. Brown incorporated a hands-on project into the lesson on Oct. 21. Each student received their own pack of store-packaged cookies. With face masks still on, desktop shields up and handwashing and desk sanitizing before and after the project, students independently worked on applying the sugar cookies’ cream filling to the top surface of the cookies in order to create the different parts of the moon that are illuminated during each moon phase.
