We present the methodologies used, the main activities, the docu- mentation and evaluation methods used in an astronomy activity proposed to chil- dren in a 5th grade class of an Italian Primary School. The main objective was to test whether the approach used (based on the IBSE method) could develop mean- ingful and long-lasting science skills in children and could increase their interest in disciplines such as physics and science. The methodology, based on Inquiry, involved moments of experimentation, hypothesis formulation, model building, dis- cussion and comparison with peers. The Inquiry course lasted about 40/45 hours and had as its main focus the Moon and the main phenomena concerning it: light and shadows, lunar phases, eclipses, and space-time dimensions of Moon-Earth.
