This week in science we are looking at the movement of the moon.
Have you ever noticed how one night the moon might be one shape, and then a few nights later it is a different shape? This lesson is going to begin to explore why we see different amounts of the moon throughout the month.
Watch this video which explains the phases of the moon
Then flick through the powerpoint presentation answering the questions as you go through.
Your task for this lesson is to draw a diagram which represents the phases of the moon as the moon orbits the earth, look at the diagram on page 6 of the power point and do your own version of this. Quiz yourself on the names of the different phases. When you have completed the diagram please try to answer the challenge questions that are also on page 6 of the powerpoint slides.
