Because the moon revolves around Earth, it seems to grow and shrink. Children can read about the phenomena of the moon's phases and with an experiment using an orange, a pencil, and a flashlight, they can see why the moon looks different at different times of the month. 'A welcome addition to science collections for young children.' --SLJ.

Can you see the moon?
Does it look like a big round ball? Or is it just a sliver of light in the sky? The moon seems to change. But it doesn't really. The moon revolves around the Earth. It takes about four weeks to make the journey, and as it travels round we can only see certain parts of it. Try the simple experiment described inside using an orange, a pencil, and a flashlight, and you'll understand why the moon seems to change.
