Phases of the Moon
This Teaching Astronomy and Space video, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), illustrates a simple demonstration of the phases of the Moon.
Using a light source and a small ball, the Moon's phases can be seen by a central observer representing the Earth. Students can take turns to be the observer or alternatively a web cam could be used to show the whole class.
