The World MOON Project is flexible. Each teacher can adjust their participation to their students’ and school’s needs. Free handbooks guide teachers and students through the project. Click Teacher Handbook or Student Handbook to learn in detail how the project works.
Teachers may choose to have their students participate from January to April or from late August to November. Some teachers have all of their students participate. Other teachers choose to have only their science club or gifted students or another student group be involved.
Participation in the World MOON Project can emphasize curricular goals in one or more of the following areas:
• Lunar phases.
• Inquiry skills or dispositions.
• Nature of science.
Students learn to observe nature firsthand and are engaged in global collaboration. The point is that different teachers may choose to emphasize different facets of the World MOON Project according to their needs. Teachers may choose to have their students take a multiple-choice test to learn about their class’s improvement in lunar knowledge. Click CMPA-R to learn more about this 30 item, computer-based test.
