A quick, easy, and inexpensive Moon Phases calculator. I use this activity to reinforce knowledge of moon phases and movement in my 5th grade classroom. Works well for both 4th and 5th grades; can be adapted for upper grades with use of the date wheel. Can be made with copier paper or cardstock.
I've included an optional date wheel for older students to learn how to calculate the number of days between phases.
Meets Texas TEKS 4.8C and 8.7C.
