Earth, Sun, & Moon Workshop PowerPoint

Workshop Information Packet

 

Listed below, are some website activities that relate to helping students understand Earth, Sun & Moon Relationships:

Don't forget, there are a TON more interactives that can be found on the 6th Grade page of my website!

 

Phases of the Moon -This flash animation is one of my favorites out there showing the phases of the Moon!

Moon Phases Simulator -This animation also does a great job of showing the phases of the moon relative to where the Moon is in relationship to the Earth and the Sun.

Why do we always see the same side of the Moon? -As you've been carefully observing the Moon during your moon journaling, you've probably noticed that you are always seeing the same surface of the Moon.  If you don't believe me, use a pair of binoculars each night and you'll notice that you are always seeing the same craters!  Anyhow, in addition to my coffee cup model that we do in class, this website does a good job of demonstrating why we always see the same side of the Moon.
