Lunar Cycle was created at the request of teachers who wanted a wearable project that would help students envision the observable shape changes of the moon during its monthly orbit around the Earth. When students create their wearable they predict and demonstrate the sequence of events in the lunar cycle. The outline for the project is pre-screened on the fabric and students fill-in the moons using a black permanent sharpie and glow-in-the-dark paint. Permanent markers and/or fabric paint can be used to color the rest of the shirt.

"My fifth grade classes had BLAST with this project (Lunar Cycle)! They were engaged and excited from start to finish. I am certain it helped them retain the knowledge they needed to learn about the moon phases. We will definitely do this project again next year."
