The Phases of the Moon!
Learn with me about the different moon phases
Why does the moon seem to change its shape every night?
The 'shape' of the moon depends on where the moons is in reference to the Sun & Earth.
The light is reflected from the Earth and hits the moon, which lets us see it. All the while, the moon is orbiting the earth, and the earth is orbiting the sun. This is why different amounts of light hit the moon each day.
Why are all of the phases illusions?
Things You'll Need
Black spray paint
Glow-in-the-dark dots or stars
Hot glue gun
Blue and green paint
Paint a shoe box inside and out with black spray paint. Let this dry overnight.
Poke holes in the box to represent stars. Make sure there is an ample source of light to shine through the box and highlight the stars. Alternatively, use glow-in-the-dark dots or tiny stars instead of making holes.
Roll the self-hardening clay into a circle. The circle will be approximately 2 inches in diameter. Cut and carve holes and crevices around the whole circle.
Glue a length of fishing wire, approximately 1 inch long, to the top of the clay ball with a hot glue gun. Use duct tape to attach the other end of the fishing wire to the top of the box. Paint the duct tape black to make it blend with the rest of the scene.
Roll an extra ball of clay to approximately 1/2 inch in diameter and paint it blue and green to represent Earth. Allow it to dry, then position it in the corner of the box, so the moon appears to be looking down on the Earth. Use the hot glue gun to hold it in place.
Glue small astronaut figures, rocket ships and the American flag to the moon with the hot glue gun. These items are found in craft stores or cake decorating supply shops.
