Need resources for teaching the phases of the Moon?
✓ Introduce the names for the phases of the Moon with images saved in a PowerPoint™ presentation*
. Choose from English text or Spanish text.
✓ Then read about the phases of the Moon
. You can choose from three reading levels in English and two in Spanish. It lets you adapt for your student's reading levels! ALL the texts have been recorded so you can listen as a class or a struggling student can listen to the text privately.
✓ Print 12 cards and have students line up to create the phases of the Moon
. At first you help them, eventually they'll need little or no help arranging themselves correctly!
✓ A video
shows the phases of the Moon using our moon.
✓ Of course, I included a calendar and images
so students can record the phases of the Moon during a month. You could post the calendar and this could easily be a class activity each day.
✓ A quick assessment
can be used to assess student understanding before the lesson, as an assessment during the lesson or as an assessment after the lesson. You could have students record their answers from the quick assessment for a pencil-and-paper assessment
to doesn't require reading or writing. There's also suggestions
for assessing a struggling learner or a very capable learner.
How often do you teach science and how long are your science classes? The teaching duration would be about three or four science classes with a bit of extra time after the activities to fill in the calendar or practice creating the phases of the Moon with students! My kids LOVE acting out the phases of the Moon.
