Lesson Plan in Integrated Science- Phases of the Moon

Read Summary

In our last lesson, we learned about Electric Circuits and its basic components such as bulbs. Before starting our new lesson, we read and discussed the objectives that we will achieve at the end of the period. We then did an activity where we identified the phases of the moon in groups and the group with the most points won. From the activity, we learned that there are eight phases of the moon, namely New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter, and Waning Crescent. We also learned that fishermen do not fish during full moon because the fish scatter due to the scattered light, and the tides are higher and lower than normal during full moon and new moon.

Ma’am, our lesson last meeting was all about Electric Circuit. The basic components of Electric Circuit are bulb( Ma’am it shows the moon’s mysterious shape. Very good! Before we will start our new lesson, everyone kindly read first the objectives that we are going to achieve at the end of the period. Activity Let us perform an activity. Group yourselves into two. These sets of chairs are Group One and the other side is Group Two. Select your group leader and secretary. Secretaries of the groups list down your members Nina crosswise of yellow paper. Inside this classroom.

It is up to your members to find it. There are phases of the moon with stars these are equal to two points, while the other containing a dot is one point. The group that would get the most earn points would win. Do the activity for only 5 minutes. Here are the rubrics for you to be guided. Objectives: 1. Identify the Phases of the Moon. 3. Appreciate and value the importance of the lesson during nighttime. 4. Relate the occurrence of Tides and the changes of Moon Phases. RUBRICS 5 4 3 Teamwork All members of the group participate in the given task.

Abstraction Let us now proceed to our discussion about the eight phases of the moon. Students, there are amounts of reflecting light that we see from the moon every night this is what they call, “phases of the moon”. They are as follows: New Moon- occurs first, it presents no light at all. Second is Waxing Crescent Third is First Quarter Waxing Gibbous Full Moon- total illuminated Waning Gibbous Ma’am, I felt happy because the activity enables the class to cooperate. Ma’am, we were astonished because the activity was like finding someone. Ma’am, there were eight different phases of the moon.

And the last phase is called Waning Crescent. These eight are arranged based on its occurrence. Here are the four main shapes or phases of the Moon. Full Moon- full illuminated Crescent- the illuminated part looks like a crescent. Quarter- half of the Moon is illuminated And Gibbous- the illuminated part forms convex, which means half full and partially dark. Alright, did you understand it class? Are there any questions about the discussion? Application Let us proceed. In our daily life, knowing the different phases of the moon is a retreat advantage.

Christine, why do fisherman do not fish during full moon? Yes, exactly. Fish are attracted to light. During full moon light is scattered so the fish also scatters causing the fishermen to catch less count of fish. Yes, it is true. Due to the gravitational pull of the moon to the water causing it to rise where the moon is and on the other side the water level tends to fall. Yes, Ma’am. No, Ma’am. It is because they don’t catch a lot of fish. Ma’am, is it true that during full moon and new moon the tides are higher and lower than normal?
