PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This package includes a 3 day (approx. 20 minutes apiece) PowerPoint guide and 2 activity sheets on the phases of the moon. Lessons address the cause of the moon phases as well as a guide to identifying the 8 main phases. Can be used as a supplement to a Moon unit or as a stand alone lesson.

All 3 downloads were created in Microsoft Office applications so they can be easily adapted/added to in order to fit your classroom needs.

By the end of these activities students will be able to:
Identify all 8 main moon phases
Refute the most common misconceptions about the moon and the phases
Explain how the phases are caused by the position of the moon in relation to the Earth and Sun
Correctly use key vocabulary words (waxing, waning, crescent, gibbous)

***Heads Up: I used videos from Brainpop and YouTube in my PowerPoint to supplement my lectures. I was not comfortable selling the PP with the links included so I removed them, but left the slides so that you can easily post links to videos yourself.
