Product Description
The Phases of the Moon can be tricky for students! This pack includes three different sets of picture cards.

The first practice set are simple picture and name cards. Students have to match the phase of the moon with its name as well as the definition of waning, waxing, crescent, and gibbous. An answer key is included for the first set of cards.

The second set of pictures are larger and incorporate movement. You can have the class work together and put themselves in the right orbital position according to their phase. One student would need to be planet Earth and another the sun. These cards already have the name matching the picture.

The third set of pictures are similar to the second set. The only difference is that the pictures don't have the name of the phase. So students will need to match their name to the picture first before putting themselves in the right orbital position according to their phase.

You could also adapt these cards for center/rotation activities. It's a nice break from paper & pencil that the students will enjoy.
