The Phases of the Moon
Science WebQuest by: Rachel Bissette
4.E.1.2 Explain the monthly changes in the appearance of the moon, based on the moon's orbit around the Earth.
Class you will be amazed at the natural patterns the moon partakes in throughout the months of the year. You will act like scientist for the next few weeks recording the data you are observing each night. Take a look at the moon and copy down on the journal linked below what exactly you see.
Students will print out moon journal and begin recording data for the next 28 days.
Students will bring in their journal sheets at the end of their studies, they will come prepared to discuss their findings with their peers.
Students will write a one paragraph response on the observations they have recorded and data they have collected over the past month.
Students will watch the video below to see if their recorded data matches the science behind the phases of the moon.
~Hope you enjoy the WebQuest that gets your students to act like scientist!
