  1. On your desk: PRIDE Card Pencil/Pen I.N. Bellwork 4/1/14 What percentage do you think you earned on the exam? How long did you spend preparing for the exam? What activities (beyond the study guide) did you do to study for the exam?

  2. THEMOON http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthvideo/9852485/Incredible-video-of-moonrise-over-Wellington-New-Zealand.html

  3. Update your Table of Contents!!!

  4. What is this a picture of? 1. Where is it found? 2. How was it formed? 3. What is it like? • Read pages 110-111 and answer these questions on the LEFT side of your IN!! THEMOON http://www.cleanvideosearch.com/media/action/yt/watch?v=GgisZcGTSNA

  5. On your desk: PRIDE Card Pencil/Pen I.N. Warm-up 4/2/14 1. How was the moon formed? The moon was formed as a result of a collision between Earth and a mars-sized object. The debris from the collision clumped together to form the moon. 2. Describe how the Moon is different today then it was billions of years ago. The moon has cooled and now has craters all over its surface.

  6. Formation • The Moon probably formed as the result of a collision between Earth and a Mars-sized object about 4.5 bya when the solar system was forming. • The material ejected from Earth and from the striking object eventually clumped to form the Moon.

  7. Breaking it down.... • Impact- Mars sized body collided with Earth • Ejection- Parts of Earth’s mantle and crust were ejected into space • Formation- Gravity causes the ejected material to clump together forming the moon

  8. Exploring the Moon • Astronomers have learned a lot about the Moon from observations with telescopes.....However, most knowledge of the Moon comes from explorations by space probes and from landings by astronauts.

  9. Exploring the Moon • The first step toward reaching the Moon was in 1957, when the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite, Sputnik I. • Four years later, Yuri A. Gagarin became the first human in space.

  10. Exploring the Moon • On July 20, 1969, the Apollo program landed Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission.

  11. Is the moon far away??? • Yes… and no • It’s the closest object to us in the solar system • Avg. distance from Earth is 380,000 km (236,121 miles) • It takes about 3 days in a rocket ship........ It would take 3 weeks if you were traveling at 500 mph

  12. Size

  13. Weight

  14. The Moon’s Surface • Does the moon glow?? • NO.....It’s the Albedo! • Albedo- the percentage of incoming sunlight that its surface reflects.

  15. What are the light colored areas? • What are the dark colored areas? Maria Highlands

  16. The Moon’s Surface • Lunar highlands are heavily cratered regions of the Moon that are light in color and mountainous. • Maria are dark, smooth plains where the craters have been filled with lava from when the moon was tectonically active

  17. The Moon’s Surface • The craters on the Moon, called impact craters, formed when objects from space crashed into the surface. • The material blasted out during these impacts fell back to the Moon’s surface as ejecta. • Some craters have long trails of ejecta, called rays, that radiate outward from the impact site.

  18. The Moon’s Surface • Rilles are meandering, valley like structures that might be collapsed lava tubes.

  19. The Moon’s Properties • Earth’s moon is unique among all the moons in the solar system. • It is one of the largest moons compared to the radius and mass of the planet it orbits.

  20. The Moon’s Properties • It is a solid, rocky body, in contrast with the icy compositions of other moons of the solar system. • The Moon’s orbit is farther from Earth relative to the distance of most moons from the planets they orbit.

  21. The Moon’s Properties • The Moon is made up of minerals similar to those of Earth—mostly silicates! • The highlands = lunar breccias, formed by the fusion of smaller rocks during impacts. • The maria = basalt that contains no water.

  22. The Moon’s Properties • Scientists infer from seismic data that the Moon, like Earth, has a layered structure, which consists of the crust, upper mantle, lower mantle, and core.

  23. What is it like on the Moon? • No air • No oceans (water) • No clouds • No life • Less gravity- 5/6 (83%) less!! • If you weigh 120lbs on Earth you would weigh 20lbs on the moon • Lots of dust

  24. Tour of the Moon • http://www.cleanvideosearch.com/media/action/yt/watch?v=2iSZMv64wuU

  25. On your desk: PRIDE Card Pencil/Pen I.N. Warm-up 4/3/14 1. Have you ever wanted to travel to the moon? 2. List 5 factors you would need to consider. (less gravity, food supply,…)

  26. Visiting the Moon • Background knowledge about surviving on the Moon!

  27. ……on the Moon!

  28. On your desk: PRIDE Card Pencil/Pen I.N. Bell Work 4/7/14 1. Is it more beneficial to have a self-inflating life raft or a magnetic compass if you were stranded on the moon? 2. Why?? A self-inflating life raft: You can use the carbon dioxide canister for propulsion! There is no use for a compass… the Moon has no magnetic field!

  29. Bell Work 4/8/14 On your desk: Pencil/Pen I.N. You DON’T have to write the Bellwork today!! • Sit in your assigned seat! • Open up your IN to a blank page (Left and Right pages). • Be ready for (a few) notes!!!

  30. Moon Phases It’s Just a Phase • Moonlight is reflected sunlight • From Earth we see different amounts of the Moon’s lit surface • The amount seen is called a “phase” • Phases are caused by the changes in the relative position of the moon, Earth and sun.

  31. FOUR MAIN SHAPES FULL CRESCENT Four Basic Shapes GIBBOUS QUARTER

  32. Draw this diagram in your notes. Use page 112 to color and label each phase of the Moon. **Draw in the counter-clockwise rotation!!

  33. Bell Work 4/9/14 On your desk: Pencil/Pen I.N. • Draw the shape and label it. A. B. C. D. QUARTER FULL CRESCENT GIBBOUS

  34. Draw this diagram in your notes. Use page 112 to color and label each phase of the Moon. **Draw in the counter-clockwise rotation!!

  35. Moon Phase Flip Book!! Label each phase Shade in each phase Cut out each all squares Staple flip book together
