Students use paper plates to construct a device which will allow them to determine the time the moon rises, transits, and sets and the way that these are related to the rising, transit, and setting of the sun. The moon finder will give students a good idea of when to look and in which direction to see the moon in its respective phases.

Students will use a paper plate and a football field to address a common misconception about the motion of the moon - that the moon "loops" around the earth - when in fact the path of the moon is always concave to the sun. At a distance of 100 yards - goal line to goal line - the plate is about the radius of the moon's orbit, and the width of the field represents about 30 degrees or 1 month. In an extension activity, students can investigate barycenter.
