In this session learn about how upper elementary and middle school students from all over the world make daily naked eye observations of the Moon. First they figure out the Moon's behavior in their own location and then by sharing observations with children around the world figure out global patterns in the Moon's behavior. Totally free. Teacher and student handbooks can be found at www.worldmoonproject.org. Join the World MOON Project at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students' identity is totally protected. Teachers may be teaching science, authentic writing in English, or English as a Second Language. University professors teaching methods of teaching science may enroll their students in the World MOON Project. The project is repeated twice each year, once September to December and again February to May.
