4. Expanding

I can identify the patterns and cycles between the earth, sun and moon, in a given model.

I can use a model to identify the cause of a specific relationship of the earth-sun-moon.

I can develop and use models of the earth-sun-moon relationship to help identify patterns in the moon phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and the seasons.

I can evaluate other models in order to revise my model or apply my model to a new phenomena within the earth-sun-moon system.
