Our View of the Moon

Science: Grade 4 and 5

vocabulary
Vocabulary
  • Phases are different shapes of the moon that we see from Earth
  • Reflect when light bounces off an object’s surface
  • Waxing when the lit part of the moon that we see gets bigger.
  • Waning when the lit part of the moon that we see gets smaller
moon phases
Moon Phases
  • Does the moon’s shape really change?
    • No, the moon goes through phases.
    • It is a round ball, but the shape of how we see the moon depends on the way the moon is positioned from Earth.
moon phases1
Moon Phases
  • The moon REFLECTS light from the sun
  • The sun shines on one –half of the moon
    • The side of the moon we see is part of the half-lit moon.
four main phases of the moon
Four Main Phases of the Moon
  • New moon when the bright side of the moon faces away from Earth. We see the dark side
  • Full moon opposite of the new moon; the moon is its largest and brightest.
crescent and gibbous phases
Crescent and Gibbous phases
  • Crescent phase we see a sliver of the bright side of the moon
  • Gibbous phase we see about ¾ of the bright side
four main phases of the moon1
Four Main Phases of the Moon
  • First quarter half the lit-side can be seen; moon looks like a half-circle
  • Last quarter we see the opposite half of the moon’s lit side.
why do we see phases1
Why do we see phases?
  • The moon moves in an orbit around Earth.
  • Look at the diagram. Determine a rule that helps you understand the phases of the moon.
order of moon phases
Order of Moon Phases
  • New moon to full moon the lit part gets larger; this is called WAXING
  • Full moon to new moon the lit part of the moon gets smaller; this is called WANING
  • The time from one full moon to the next is about one month; the moon takes about one month to complete its orbit
discussion question
Discussion Question
  • During which phase of the moon would it be easier to see stars in the night sky? Explain your answer.
