This resource, from the Royal Observatory Greenwich, uses daytime viewing of the Moon to reinforce ideas learned in the classroom about light, shadow and the Moon itself. Advice is given on the best times to view the Moon, and the compulsory and optional equipment needed. By viewing the Moon during the day, students will be able to study six of the eight phases of the Moon during school hours with the direct assistance of teachers. The Royal Observatory Greenwich resource, Phases of the Moon, can be used as an extension activity.
