Take a break from worksheets and get your students involved and engaged with Phases of the Moon Pictionary. This allows students to practice illustrating and identifying the phases of the Moon and related ideas like tides and Earth and Moon motions. Pictionary can be particularly useful for students who are struggling to connect to vocabulary terms and to draw the phases of the Moon correctly. Phases of the Moon Pictionary can also serve as a valuable formative assessment as the teacher circulates to see student progress and areas of weakness. Play quick rounds during class transitions or dedicate 20 minutes to a full round of play.
