PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A straightforward and engaging lesson to help your students understand the moon phases and the 4 main phases: new moon, 1st quarter, full moon, and 3rd quarter. Besides there being no lecturing needed, the best part is that students build this model with their own hands and can see for themselves what causes the moon phases before you explain it.

Another very cool thing driving this lesson about the moon phases is a genuine curiosity students already have about the moon phases, since they're already familiar with them. They've always "sort of" realized that it changes (between new moon, first quarter, full moon, and third quarter), but they've never really understood why.

Use any this moon phases graphic organizer any time you like when teaching anything lunar- at the beginning to build interest introduce, in the middle to solidify, or at the end of a moon phases unit to prep for a test.

Key terms- moon phases, new moon, full moon, 3rd quarter, 1st quarter, lunar phases
