Take a deeper look at the relationship between the moon and tides over time!
In this activity worksheet middle school students are provided the dates of extreme tides and full moons over a 5 months period, and fill this information into a series of small calendar boxes. From this information, they must predict the dates for the neap tides during these months. They must also make a small diagram of how the moon would appear on each calendar day. A quick analysis section is included at the end, but the bulk of the assignment is to complete the calendars with moon phases and tides to observe the relationship between the two.
