Description:

This fun and simple hands-on astronomy activity lets learners make 3-dimensional models of the Earth and Moon. Using the Sun's light, learners will discover that the Moon rotates in the same amount of time it takes to make one orbit around the Earth. The Moon experiences day and night, but each day lasts about 14 Earth days, as does each night. The pdf contains step-by-step instructions, photos, presentation tips, and links to background information.
