Based on student observations and findings, and what has been learned in class, students will create an informative Moon exhibit. Eight large, smooth-edged paper plates will be needed to depict the phases of the Moon. Black poster or tempera paints and paint brushes, large dark blue construction paper, and loads of pencils and writing paper will be needed to complete this effort.
A team of students will be needed to (1) paint the Moon phases on the paper plates; (2) help mount and design the finished work, (3) write information they know about each depicted phase of the Moon; and to write general information concerning the Moon. The completed display can be showcased along the school corridor or in the classroom.
