Seasons and Moon Phases Kit
Teachers will use golf balls and a black light to allow students to discover the way that the Moon appears to change shape as it changes its position around Earth. Inquiry-based activities use Earth globes equipped with solar cells to collect meaningful data and investigate the differences in the amount of energy received with changes in sun angle. Students will discover the cause of seasonal change through an analysis of the evidence they collect. Lessons allow students to come to a more concrete understanding of seasons, and answer the question of why we see different constellations at different parts of the year.
Created and provided by the Clark Planetarium, meets 6th grade Standard 1 - Moon Phases and Standard 2 - Seasons.
