Description:

This is an activity about investigating students' preconceptions of the Moon's appearance and its phases. Learners will first draw an image of how they think the Moon looks and then discuss as a group why the drawn pictures may vary. Then, learners will analyze a series of lunar phase photos, sorting them in the order they believe to be correct based on their experiences and ideas. This is Activity A-1 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of Activities and Resources for Teaching Astronomy DVD-ROM, which is available for purchase.
