Here we have a hands-on activity to teach the causes of Moon phases. The activity can be used stand-alone.
It is also incorporated into the presentation and teacher guide below.
We also provide a Powerpoint presentation and extensive teacher guide to on how to use Active Engagement to teach and learn Moon phases.
The presentation was initially developed as a hands-on high school teacher workshop to
be given in Developing Nations where new teaching metholody might not always be known.
The bulk of the activities relate to modeling Moon phases as a part of teaching and learning them.
The Teacher Guide includes extensive commentary for most slides as well as complete instructions for doing the various activities.
