In Science class this month students are studying Astronomy. This unit “Spaceship Earth” gives students a chance to develop a new perspective on the world they’re standing on. Students were asked “Does the moon change shape”? During the Science investigation, each student received a Styrofoam ball, straw and flashlight. With the moon on the straw, each student rotated their body while Ms. Logan flashed a light source on the moon. Briahna discovered that the moon appears to change shape but it is not changing shape at all. Instead, the moon phases are created when the moon spins around on its axis and the sun.
