Develop Models for Phases of the Moon

In this series of NGSS aligned activities/assessments by Science and Kids Activities, teachers assess prior knowledge by asking students to organize a series of cards showing different phases of the Moon; then students observe the Moon and record its shape in a lunar calendar for one month; next, students use a model to show that the phases of the Moon depend on the locations of the Moon, Sun and Earth; then students read Phases of the Moon Science Notes and complete a graphic organizer. Students organize their moon phases cards in a chart to conceptualize the following phases of the Moon: full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, waning crescent, new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, and waxing gibbous. As a final assessment, students are challenged to make and present their own model of lunar phases. A series of ten multiple-choice items are included to assess student understanding of the phases of the Moon.
