This Lunar Cycle Collaborative poster will help your students gain a better spatial understanding of the moon phases by showing the motion of the Earth and Moon around the Sun. The Sun is located in the center, surrounded by the title, then the 12 months of the year. For each month, students will use the location of the sunlight, Earth and Moon to determine the moon phase for that position. They will cut and paste the correct moon phase in the square. Students may also be expected to label each moon phase and draw the position of the Moon as it orbits the Earth.
Extend this activity by adding the outer constellation hexagons. Students will understand why some constellations are not visible at certain times of the year, by showing the relative position of the Earth, Sun and stars.
This PDF file includes:
★ 4 options for student instructions (see preview)
★ 7 pages with visual instructions for teachers (see preview)
★ 37 pages of hexagons to create the poster display
