This cut and paste activity asks students to match the lunar phase terminology (waxing, waning, crescent, gibbous) with a picture of moon clip art and a description of that lunar shape.
Students can view the sheet and try to memorize the phase shapes (Ala the Memory game) before they cut it up, mix it up, and match it up. Paste it into an interactive notebook, and you have a great study guide!
This activity is best used as an introduction to lunar vocabulary, before all the moon phases are introduced .
CUT IT IN HALF! Each student should only receive 1/2 of the sheet.
