Product Description
Moon Phases: Are you studying the moon phases in science? Maybe you are introducing them or needing a review. If so, your students will enjoy this fun "moon phases" word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.

In this moon phases themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions and the content may be more suitable for upper elementary (see the list below).

I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students explain the moon phases in writing using the diagram. Use it as a guide to have them share what they have learned about the moon phases. How about homework or even to trigger their memory before state testing or a unit test. Use this moon phases word search however you would like in your classroom.
