As part of the 5th grade science curriculum in Connecticut, students get to keep a monthly moon journal in this long-term project. Included in this Monthly Moon Journal Project is a direction sheet with rubric which can be easily differentiated in this Microsoft Word Document. Also included is a calendar sheet set up for December 2013, but the dates can be changed depending upon what month you would like the project to be completed in, as well as a journal sheet for students to take weekly notes. There is also as a moon phase reference sheet with a description and illustration of each phase. This project is a very organized time-saver to teachers who cover the phases of the moon in their teaching!
