5E Lesson on the Lunar Cycle
- Includes Everything you Need to Teach a Comprehensive Lesson on this topic (includes this product)
The product includes:
-8 moon phase photos cards with moon phase name on them
-8 blank moon phase photo cards
- 1 Sun with name on it
- 1 Sun that is blank
- 1 Earth with name on it
- 1 Earth that is blank
There are two manipulatives in this one product.
This same card set can be found in my Mad Science Moon Phases Station Lab
and it comes with 8 activities.
The first activity allows the student to place the moon phase photo and name card in the correct location, as it relates the Earth and the Sun. To enrich this activity you could also use the photos and name cards separately. They would have to place each of them as it relates to the Earth and the Sun.
The second activity allows the student to match the picture and moon phase name with each other.
There are actually many ways that you can setup the activity, but these are some of the ways that I have used it.
I use this activity to solidify knowledge in the classroom, but have also used it during interventions or as a state test prep activity.
The activity is 100% aligned with TEKS 8.7B
-demonstrate and predict the sequence of events in the lunar cycle
