    The 6-E inquiry steps you have used are very similar to the Curious Minds/ESERO Framework for Inquiry that has been developed in Ireland.

    Key is the wondering and exploring before children use their science understanding to predict and investigate.

    I have done a similar activity and used masking tape rolls to be the craters and asked children: I wonder when the shadows of the craters will be easiest to see? I wonder where the Sun will be when the shadows are longest?

    For older children you could link this to the phase of the Moon and how 1st quarter Moon images have great shadows on the terminator.
