Read full description of the books:
For my second Twin Text, I chose the non-fiction book, Eight Days Gone by Linda McReynolds illustrated by Ryan O’Rourke (2012). This book takes a look at the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969. It is written in simple verse and gives a basic description of what happened during the eight-day mission to the moon.
Most primary students have heard about spaceships and astronauts, but thy might not have heard about specific missions to the moon. To help students see how much goes into getting a man to the moon (that people need to go to it), I paired this text with the fiction book, Moonday by Adam Rex (2013). Moonday tells the story of the moon visiting a boy’s backyard. The book highlights some of the jobs of the moon such as bringing in the tide and shows that the moon’s proper place is in the sky.
I would use this Twin Text in a science class to talk about the moon and missions to the moon with the Know, Want to Know, and Learn (KWL) method. I would start off by asking students what the moon does. I would then read them the book, Moonday, and ask them if the moon can leave the sky and visit backyards. I would ask them if we could visit the moon. I would then ask them what they know of man missions to the moon, specifically if they know anything about the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. I would then ask them what they want to know about the Apollo 11 mission. I would read them Eight Days Gone and ask them what they learned about the mission. All of this I would write on the board under columns so that the whole class can see what the knew and then what they learned.
