Phases of the Moon

Our topic Shipwrecked has seen us learning about the RNLI, and now we have begun to examine and understand the science behind the phases of the moon and what causes tides on earth. We have researched the position of the Earth, sun and moon in space, and in order to help us understand the phases of the moon, we have used Oreos to recreate each step in the cycle. We have really enjoyed our work on the moon, and particularly enjoyed disposing of the evidence once we had finished making our own moon phase chart!
