The moon is fascinating to study! Honestly, every aspect of space is. Luckily, the multiple templates help teach and review phases of the moon. Additionally, there are templates for students to explore the differences between solar and lunar eclipses. Students will even discover how spring and neap tide work. 

To push thinking further, students will represent the position of the sun, moon, and earth during eclipses and tides.
