Lesson Description

Explore the arrangement of the Sun, Earth, Moon system, and inclination of the Moon’s orbit necessary to generate solar and lunar eclipses. Determine the likelihood of observing these phenomena. Share your eclipse knowledge with your kingdom, preventing a revolt and saving it from attack.

Central Question: What is the arrangement of the Sun, Earth, Moon system to generate solar and lunar eclipses?

Instructional Objective: Use a model to discover and demonstrate how the moon’s inclination (orbital plane) in combination with the position of the Sun, Earth, moon system will generate predictable eclipse patterns.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learning Outcome #1: Use a model to generate solar and lunar eclipses of the Sun, Earth, Moon system

Prerequisites

  • Moon Phases
