Can anyone tell me specifically about the lunar cycle? I have read some articles but I am looking for something short and straight to the point. I am going to teach a lesson on this topic and I need more information.

The moon has various phases, it takes about 14 days for the moon to go from the New Moon stage to the Full moon stage. One full cycle is about 28 days. The phases start with the new moon (seeing nothing in the sky) and wax (get bigger) until they get to the full moon and then wane (get smaller) to go back to the new moon phase. Other phases of the moon are the crescent, gibbous, and quarter moon.
