Take an inquiry-based look at the relationship between moon phases and tides over time!
In this worksheet, students are provided the dates of extreme (spring and neap) tides and moon phases over a 5 month period, and fill this information into a series of small calendar boxes. By looking at these dates, students can make their own correlation between moon phases and extreme tides. An analysis section asks students to form conclusions about how neap and spring tides relate to moon phases, and has students complete a Claims/Evidence/Reasoning grid.
