Introduce your patterns in the night sky unit (aka. phases of the moon) using this quick and to the point PowerPoint. In the first few slides guide students through truths and misconceptions regarding the moon; after learning the truth behind popular moon myths, students will then explore each phase of the moon cycle.
Included are student directions for an Oreo Moon Exploration. In this activity students are provided Oreo cookies (or any creme filled cookie) and get a hands on and yummy opportunity to turn their cookie into the Moon's phases.
I hope you enjoy!
