Product Description
5E Lesson - Student Activity Sheet

Follows NGSS:
MS-ESS1-1. Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.

For this activity, you will need to make little "Lunar Lollipops." I did this by sticking 2 inch styrofoam balls on to popsicle sticks, but I have also just used "tootsie pop" lollipops before. You will also need small flashlights, or one bright lamp in the center of the room with no lampshade.

This activity uses Apple technology (iMotion app) for students to create a stop motion animation. I had students draw on individual white boards. The app is very user-friendly. If your students do not have access to iPads or stop motion technology, you could very easily have them make a "Stop Motion Flip-Book" to show the phases of the moon.
