Title: Lunar Cycle 2: The Challenge     
Description: In this tool, created by Science NetLinks, students '' drag'' moons to their correct places in lunar cycles. There are calendars that include illustrations of the phases of the moon for most days, and the challenge is for students to complete the calendars by filling them with the correct moon phases for all days. A child s voice narrates the activity, providing students with ongoing feedback and guidance. There are three levels in this Lunar Cycle Challenge, and after students successfully complete all three levels they can print out a certificate of completion. There is also a printable version of this tool, allowing for a hands-on activity in which students manipulate illustrations of the phases of the moon, placing them in the correct sequence in lunar cycles. While this page links to the overview of the tool for grades 3-5, you can access reviews for additional grades and benchmarks using the navigation tools at the top of the overview.
