Product Description

Reinforce learning of the moon and its lunar phases with this collaborative lab and diary data collection activity. The hands on activity will have student reinforce their knowledge as well as metric measurement and following directions to replicate the lunar cycle. Students will work together to compare their diagram with the eight phases of the moon that can be viewed on earth. In addition, there is a diary of the moon activity that will have students keep track of the moon's orbit for a thirty day period. Students will track the phases, sunrise and sunset times, moonrise and moonset times and keep observations. At the end of the period, students will analyze and reflect on the data. Both activities include a "Sneak peek into my classroom" which gives tips and insight into how I used these with my own students. An answer key is also included.

This resource includes:
