Space Exploration: The Moon 1

Focus: The student can identify the Moon’s surface features and the moon phases.

slide3

Revolves around the Earth.

The Moon

  • Is covered with light and dark areas. The darker areas called “maria”, the Latin word for seas.
  • Is covered with numerous craters. These craters were caused by the impact of meteorites.

The appearance of the moon as affected by the movement of the Earth, Moon, and Sun.

Moon Phases

Prior Knowledge

slide6

The moon reflects sunlight which allows us to see the lighted part.

Moon Phases

  • Half the Moon is always lit by the Sun, however you can’t always see the lighted half.
  • What we do see are the different portions of the lighted part (Moon Phases).

slide11

The second phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Waxing Crescent

Prior Knowledge

slide12

Waxing Crescent

1. The sunlit portion is increasing, but less than half.

2. The term “waxing” means growing larger in size.

slide14

The third phase in the Lunar Cycle.

First Quarter

Prior Knowledge

slide15

First Quarter

  • happens when the moon is at a 90 degree angle with respect to the earth and sun. So we are seeing exactly half of the moon illuminated and half in shadow.
slide17

The fourth phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Waxing Gibbous

Prior Knowledge

slide18

Waxing Gibbous

  • the sunlit portion is still increasing, but now it is more than half.
slide20

The fifth phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Full Moon

Prior Knowledge

slide21

Full Moon

  • The moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, so the entire sunlit part of the Moon is facing us. The shadowed portion is entirely hidden from view.
slide23

The sixth phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Waning Gibbous

Prior Knowledge

slide24

Waning Gibbous

  • the sunlit portion is decreasing, but it is still more than half.

1. The term “waning” means it appears to get smaller in size.

slide26

The seventh phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Third Quarter

Prior Knowledge

slide27

Third Quarter

  • happens when the moon is at a 90 degree angle with respect to the earth and sun. So we are seeing exactly half of the moon illuminated and half in shadow.
slide29

The eighth phase in the Lunar Cycle.

Waning Crescent

Prior Knowledge

slide30

Waning Crescent

  • The sunlit portion is still decreasing, but it is less than half.
slide32

Moon Phases Illustration

  • Draw the Moon Phases
  • Must include the Sun, Earth and the 8 Phases of the Moon.
  • The Phases must be drawn correctly and labeled with the name of the Moon Phase.
