The Moon Made Me Do It!

Lesson Plan Overview

Much like rising and setting sun has an impact on life on Earth, the cycle of the moon can change plant and animals behavior. In this lesson plan, students will discuss how the lunar cycle affects living organisms and how this might occur. They will also design experiments that could figure out whether the lunar cycle affects a specific behavior.
