SCI.K-4.4.P1.1a.5: Science

the appearance of the Moon changing as it moves in a path around Earth to complete a single cycle

SCI.5-8.4.P1.1c: Science

The Sun and the planets that revolve around it are the major bodies in the solar system. Other members include comets, moons, and asteroids. Earth' orbit is nearly circular.

SCI.5-8.4.P1.1d: Science

Gravity is the force that keeps planets in orbit around the Sun and the Moon in orbit around the Earth.

SCI.5-8.4.P1.1e: Science

Most objects in the solar system have a regular and predictable motion. These motions explain such phenomena as a day, a year, phases of the Moon, eclipses, tides, meteor showers, and comets.

SCI.5-8.4.P1.1g: Science

Moons are seen by reflected light. Our Moon orbits Earth, while Earth orbits the Sun. The Moon's phases as observed from Earth are the result of seeing different portions of the lighted area of the Moon's surface. The phases repeat in a cyclic pattern in about one month.

SCI.9-12.E.4.1.1.a.1: Science

These motions explain such phenomena as the day, the year, seasons, phases of the moon, eclipses, and tides.

SCI.9-12.E.4.1.1.a.2: Science

Gravity influences the motions of celestial objects. The force of gravity between two objects in the universe depends on their masses and the distance between them.
