Topics in this product include: Moon Phases, New Moon, 1st quarter Moon, Full Moon, 3rd quarter Moon, waxing, waning, crescent, gibbous, orbit/revolve, rotation, & the near and far side of the Moon
This is a collection of 3 hands-on activities that will help students understand the basic concepts of the Moon cycle and the moon's orbit and rotation. The lessons are:
Experience the Lunar Phases
Create a Lunar Calendar
Why We Can Only See One Side of a Rotating Moon
These simple activities require VERY few materials other than the plans and instructions that are included. However, they will help students to understand concepts that are very difficult to describe with words alone.
