MAKE YOUR OWN MOON
You will need: -
Soccer or beach ball, glue, glue brush, glass, tinfoil, scissors, reusable adhesive, flashlight
1.Make sure that you have washed and dried the ball thoroughly before using.
Paint glue all over the ball. Rest it on a glass or something similar, to keep it still.
2.Carefully cut the tinfoil into large square sheets. Wrap up the ball in the tinfoil.
Try to make sure that the wrapping is as smooth as possible. You now have your own Moon!
3.Place your Moon on a table. Wedge a small ball of reusable adhesive under the ball.
This will hold it firm and stop it from rolling off the table.
4.Get your friend to stand at one side of the table to shine a flashlight with a strong beam
on your Moon. Go to the opposite side of the table. Look at your Moon with the main lights out.
5.Gradually move around the table, keeping your eyes steadily on the Moon,
which is lit up one side by the flashlight. You will see the different shapes it takes.
These shapes are the Moon?s phases.
