Why does the Moon appear to have different shapes that repeat on a monthly cycle? What do the terms waxing and waning mean? In this activity, students will be given lunar and solar longitude data and map the orbit of the Moon for a full month's time! This ingenious activity uses a durable lunar orbit map to chart the movement and visibility of the moon. Learning the phases of the Moon has never been so easy!
Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
