Tides Model Flip Book

You are creating a flip-book that models the relationship between Sun, Earth, Moon, & Tides! Be neat, creative, complete, & accurate!


  • Colored - only with map pencils - NO MARKERS
  • Each page needs to include the Sun, Earth, Moon, & Tidal Bulge
  • Each page needs to include the Day in the lunar cycle (e.g., Day 1, Day 7)
  • Include New Moon, Full Moon, and both Quarter Moons. You may include additional phases as appropriate.
  • Exaggerate the tidal bulge so that I can tell where the bulge exists relative to the moon.
  • Identify Spring Tides & Neap Tides.


Work Days: Fri 2/7 (full class) & Mon 2/10 (10 mins) Due: Tuesday 2/11 BoC
