We just covered the phases of the Moon, with tides as our next topic of study. It occurred to me that the http://www.perkinselearning.org/accessible-science/phases-moon-active-model model would work well to explain this concept as well as how higher tidal ranges occur during spring tides (New Moon and Full Moon) and lower tidal ranges occur during Neap Tide (First Quarter and Third Quarter). This served a double purpose, both clarifying the concepts of spring tides and neap tides, as well as reinforcing students' understanding of the phases of the Moon.
Please read over this procedure prior to completing the activity. I have included in this procedure all of the questions to add for the added content.
If an APH globe is not available, the student themselves can represent the earth and the moon. Please see variations.
