The Moon and all its Shapes Lesson 23
The moon is Earth’s satellite. The moon circles the EarthThe moon is Earth’s satellite. The moon circles the Earth. The Earth circles the sun.
From Earth, the moon looks like it has two sidesFrom Earth, the moon looks like it has two sides. Those sides are called the far side and the near side.
We always see just one side of the moon, the near side of the moonWe always see just one side of the moon, the near side of the moon. The near side has a lot of dark shadows on it.
As the moon circles the Earth we only see one side of the moon, the nearside of the Moon.
Here is a video that shows the moon circling the EarthHere is a video that shows the moon circling the Earth. The Earth spins fast. It takes the Earth 1 day (24 hours) to spin.
It takes the moon about one month to circle around the Earth.
We can only see the far side of the moon from spaceWe can only see the far side of the moon from space. We can not see the far side from Earth.
If you watch the moon every night for a month it looks like the moon changes shape.
But the moon never changes shape. It always stays the same.
The sun’s light which is reflecting off the moon like a mirror is what is changing.
Here are the phases of the moon.
It takes the moon one month to travel around the EarthIt takes the moon one month to travel around the Earth. This is what the moon looks like during one month.
Two words that are used to describe the changes in moon is waning and waxing.
Waxing is when the moon continues to get bigger.
Waning is when the moon continues to grow smaller.
Let’s watch a video about the moon’s phases or shapes.
Now let’s take out our science notebook and draw the 8 phases of the moon together.
During a new moon we can not see the moonDuring a new moon we can not see the moon. The Earth is actually blocking the sunlight.
Crescent Waxing (waxing means getting bigger)
Half moon waxing (waxing means getting bigger)
Gibbous Waxing (waxing means getting bigger)
Gibbous Waning (waning means getting smaller)
Half moon waning (waning means getting smaller)
Crescent waning (waning means getting smaller)
Then the whole cycle starts againThen the whole cycle starts again. The moon’s phases are a pattern that keep repeating each month.
Once in awhile the Earth will come between the moon and the sun while the moon is full.This creates a lunar eclipse.
This is what a lunar eclipse would look like.
Once in awhile the moon will get between the Earth and the sun.This creates a solar eclipse.
This is what a solar eclipse would look like.
In our next lesson we will talk about day and night.
Keep observing the world around you!

Moon Phases. Rules of Moon Phases The moon has 8 phases. The moon has phases because it revolves around the Earth As the moon moves, the amount.
It takes 29 ½ days – almost 1 month – for the moon to move (revolve) around the Earth.

© A. Weinberg. When you look up in our night sky, you will see the moon! The way that the moon looks changes during the month. We say that the phases.
Vocabulary: revolve, orbit, phase, reflect, waxing, waning
Moon Phases. Half of the Moon is always lit up by the sun. As the Moon orbits the Earth, we see different parts of the lighted area.
