This lesson plan begins with reading aloud the story "Kitten's First Full Moon" which can be found on youtube if the book is not available. Then the phases are described and a game can be played to ensure the information sticks. This is a very active and engaging lesson plan for all learners. While it is aligned to Kindergarten Missouri standards, it can be adapted for 1st or 2nd grades, as well.
