We Share the Same Moon is a free online resource for science educators around the globe to champion the use of storytelling as a stimulus for science learning.
In March 2021 we explored the theme: What is Light? A series exploring light and associated science concepts from UK curriculum such as reflection, life and growth, and our Moon. These three free sessions were offered to teachers and their classrooms or homeschoolers on Fridays during the month beginning the week of British Science Week.
These sessions were run jointly by Cassandra Wye, Storyteller and Creator of We Share the Same Moon and Lucinda Offer Education and Outreach Officer for the Royal Astronomical Society.
