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

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system. Emphasis is on Newtonian gravitational laws governing orbital motions, which apply to human-made satellites as well as planets and moons. Mathematical representations for the gravitational attraction of bodies and Kepler’s Laws of orbital motions should not deal with more than two bodies, nor involve calculus.
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. Examples of models can be physical, graphical, or conceptual.
