Transcript of Phases of the moon
4th grade Science AKS: analyze the role of relative position and motion in determining the sequence of the phases of the moon (GPS, ITBS) (4SC_B2006-9)
Ever wonder why the moon looks different every night?
Occurs when the Moon is positioned between the Earth and Sun.
The Earth, Moon, and Sun are in approximate alignment, just as the New Moon, but the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth.
When the moon is at a 90 degree angle with respect to the Earth and Sun we see a half Moon
When the Moon is at a 90 degree angle with respect to the Earth and Sun we see a half moon.
After the first quarter, the sunlit portion is still increasing, but now it is MORE than half.
After the new Moon, the sunlit portion is increasing, but less than half.
After the Full Moon (maximum illumination), the light continually decreases.
Decreasing light, less than half of the moon is illuminated.
Name the phases of the Moon and list them in order.
Explain why we see Moon phases.
