Product Description
This is a spinwheel that I created to relate the movement of the celestial bodies to the phenomena on Earth of "rise" and "set". Students create the spinwheel and glue it into their notebooks. The worksheet is designed to have the students use the spinwheel and relate it to ideas about Moon phases and the Sun, Earth & Moon relationships they have previously taken notes on. I have students work in pairs and then go over the questions together. I have included the answer key with the WS. I find that once they understand the spinwheel and how it works, it is a valuable resource for helping students to know when to go out and look for the Moon and why it will only be visible at certain times.

Below the spinwheel in their notebook and after the discussion, I have students view the interactive called Lunar Phase Interactive at the following website:
http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072482621/student_view0/interactives.html#
Then then write a statement to answer the following question: Why does the Moon appear to rise and set? Use the words rotate, revolve, and time.

Good Luck!
