This lesson provides a variety of ways for students to learn moon phases. It helps them learn how to remember the phases with memory tricks. Practice and repition are used throughout the week as the activities can be used multiple times. Do you students like competition? Turn it in to a race! Do they need one on one tutoring? Use the cards! Do they prefer to work alone? This lesson allows for group learning or individualized work.
*Note: One manipulative will need a ping pong ball with half of it colored black with a permanent marker. This allows for a 3D visual aid. However, if you do not have one or cannot get one, the visual is still useful in allowing students to see the positions of the moon around the Earth. You can even use the moon flash cards to show the phase at the particular postion.
Have fun and enjoy!
