Knowledge_On-The-Go_Grade-5Level 5 Module 4 Lesson 15: The Moon's Orbit

In Lesson 15, students answer the Phenomenon Question: Why is the Moon visible at different times of day? Students build on their knowledge of the rotation of Earth, analyzing (SEP.4) moonrise and moonset data to look for patterns (CC.1) in the direction and period of the Moon’s orbit. This leads students to wonder whether changes in the Moon’s appearance over a month are related to these patterns.
