THIS PRODUCT IS PART OF MY PHASES OF THE MOON BUNDLE
- Please check out that bundle prior to purchasing this product individually!
This product is a fun, hands-on learning activity to help students practice their understanding of the Phases of the Moon! The students’ job is to cut out the pictures of the phases and glue them into the correct spots in the “empty moons” so that the moon cycle is complete!
This activity requires the use of scissors and glue/tape to stick the cut-out pictures into the correct spots in the moon cycle.
There are versions of the matching activity using only four phases for younger students who are just beginning to learn about the phases, and there are versions with all eight phases for older students who are learning about all of the phases!
This product offers the following, which can be seen in the preview:
4-Phase Sheets: New Moon → First Quarter → Full Moon → Third Quarter
8-Phase Sheets: New Moon → Waxing Crescent → First Quarter → Waxing Gibbous → Full Moon → Waning Gibbous → Third Quarter → Waning Crescent
I did each worksheet with the phase names inside the “empty moons” as well as on the outside in case you would still want your students to see the names of the phases after they have glued/taped the cut-out pictures in place. There are also answer sheets included for each number of phases!
