Welcome to the Moon Phases and Faces project. 
When the moon is full in the USA, what does it look like in Brazil? Students create images of the moon, share their information in webpage and comment on each others web page. 
In this six - seven week project, students take a survey, learn all about the phases of the moon and how the face of the moon differs in the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere by observing the moon each day; taking photos and/or drawing the moon as it changes each day during the month; sharing a moon journal; and commenting on other moon journals. The project will conclude with a survey and written or videoed reflection.   

The project will start on April 7, 2012. Moon images need to be taken starting April 7.
