This simple and well-organized tracking form allows students to track the moon as it appears to them over a one month period. As explained in the directions, the students will draw a representation of the moon every three days totalling 10 images in 30 days. The students will have to record observation notes including components such as the time they observed it as well as anything else they noticed. They will also have to attempt to identify the moon phase. This student centered project can easily be assigned as a homework for students to realize that the moon phase changes gradually over a month period as well as how the time of day the moon is visible changes as well. Students will be so excited to be able to draw, and take ownership over something that is such a normal part of their world!
