The purpose of the assessment probe, in this chapter, is to elicit children’s ideas about the lunar cycle. The probe is designed to reveal how long students think it takes to complete a lunar cycle.
Students at this young grade level certainly could be asked to determine the pattern of the full moon appearance. This could be taught through observation or using a website that has the appropriate calendar for students to use.
