Abstract: Students used both virtual and physical models in a middle school lab that teaches the cause of lunar phases. Phase 1 compared two virtual models a complex 3D model vs. a simplified 2D model. Students who used the 3D model had higher learning gains. Phase 2 compared activity sequencing. Preliminary results indicate that students with high prior knowledge benefit from using the virtual model first. Further study may confirm if this result is statistically significant.
