Summary of Lunar Phases: Advanced

Type of Resource



The goal of this virtual lab is to explore how changes in the moon’s orbit and position can impact the different phases of the moon.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS1-4   Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

MS-ESS1-1   Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
