How to review withOUT drill and kill: Logic Line-Ups. I use this Logic Line-Up to review the lunar phases, also known as the phases of the Moon. Students will study the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth.
Develop your students' thinking skills with hands-on cooperative logic activities. You copy the provided picture cards and clues for your students. They work in teams to figure out how to use the clues to line up their cards in the correct order. Build your students' deductive thinking skills, spatial reasoning, spatial vocabulary, and teamwork skills with these ready-to-use, logic activities. You'll find problems, answers and reproducible, line-up cards.
This product also includes a Line-Up activity to have team members make a human model of the lunar phases. They randomly select a role to play, and sequence themselves correctly to check comprehension of the causes of the changing lunar appearance during the month.
