This rubric makes it very easy to quickly grade a students' work. Simply pass out Oreos to your class and have them scrape off the icing and arrange them in the order of the moon phases. Rate their work based on direction following, use of time, execution, and accuracy. Circle their total points earned to easily see a percentage grade for the assignment.
This rubric follows this Georgia Performance Standard:
S4E2b. Students will model the position and motion of the earth in the solar system and will explain the role of relative position and motion in determining sequence of the phases of the moon.
b. Explain the sequence of the phases of the moon.
