  • 1. Phases of the Moon By: Teikeshia Delk
  • 2. Objective:
    • Objects in the sky have a regular and predictable pattern
    • Students know the way in which the moon’s appearance changes during the four week lunar cycle.
    • California Science Standard 4B
  • 3. Unlike the sun, the moon does not give off its own light. Instead it reflects the sun’s light .
  • 4. Because of the orbit we do not always see the full moon.
  • 5. The phase that we see depends on the position of the Earth, moon, and sun .
  • 6. It is called waxing when the reflecting light is growing toward the full moon.
  • 7. It is called waning when the reflecting light is shrinking to the new moon.
  • 8.
    • The moon, sun, and Earth are lined up
    • Sun’s light reflects off the side of the moon facing it.
    • The moon appears dark from the Earth.
    The New Moon
  • 9. Waxing Crescent
    • It is between the new moon and first quarter
    • A small slither of brightness on the right
    • Dark part is most visible to Earth
  • 10. First Quarter Moon
    • Moon is to the left of Earth and sun
    • Half of the moon is visible to Earth
    • Half light; half dark
  • 11. Waxing Gibbons
    • Stage between first quarter and full moon
    • Most of the bright side is visible
  • 12. We see a full moon when the sun, moon and Earth are lined up. With the side of the moon facing the Earth illuminated. Full Moon
  • 13.
    • After the full moon
    • The right side appears dark or invisible
    • Opposite of waxing gibbous
  • 14.
    • Moon is to the right of the Earth and sun
    • It is the opposite of the first quarter moon
    • Appears to be a half moon
  • 15. Waning Crescent
    • Occurs between the last crescent and the new moon
