Moon Phases

Today we learned about the phases of the moon.  Anytime you add FOOD to the mix it really gets kids excited about learning.  Students have been keeping a moon journal to record their observations each night.  We've also been reading about the phases.

We talked about each one and they were given the sheet below to look at.

Here's are new moons.

Here are some full moons.

And here's an example of a waning crescent.

Most kids broke the tops to show each phase but one student had me laughing out loud.  He had decided to nibble at his cookie to show each phase.  Of course the BEST part for them was to eat them up!
