Planetarium Lab: Moon Phases


This is simply the best way to teach the phases of the Moon and motion of the Earth, Sun and Moon system.  Using the planetarium dome and hands-on activities, we'll cover the following concepts:
  • Earth: axis, rotation, tilt, day and night, seasons
  • Moon: location, apparent path across the sky, rotation and revolution, phases, eclipses
  • Sun: properties, apparent path across the sky, eclipses
Age Recommendations: Grades 3 - 5
