This MOON PHASES lesson and resource includes activities that will assist with the MOON PHASES calendar.
The activities are developmentally appropriate and also differentiated for ALL your learners. It is a GREAT whole group activity for our little ones just starting out with learning about the MOON PHASES. I know when my little ones tried to color the moons they had left mixed up with right and black mixed up with white so I tried my best to break it down for them. Together we were able to create a moon phase calendar that was perfect! For the older grades, it is perfect as a review for cooperative grouping or for independent learners.
The packet includes:
A Moon Phase Explanation Chart (p. A)
Moon Phase Tier 1 vocabulary words (p. B)
Moon Phase Tier 2 vocabulary words (p.C)
Moon Phase Tier 3 vocabulary words (p.D)
The Moon Phases graphic page (p.1) where the student must fill in and label the phases of the moon in an independent manner.
The Moon Phases Graphic page (p.2) where the student must color in the phases of the moon based on the label provided.
The Moon Phase Graphic page (p. 3) where the student is given dotted and solid line as well as letter clues as to which color each piece of the moons should be based on the label provided.
This Moon Phase Graphic page (p. 4) where the students is given the dotted and solid lines clues without labels
This Moon Phase Graphic page (p.5) where the students simply cut and paste the label that matches the moon phase.

Last page is the answer key!
