This product is a color-by-number activity that allows students to answer various questions relating to moon phases and predicting past and upcoming phases. And YES- even secondary students love to color!
There are 8 different questions with 8 answer choices (pictured moon phases) for students to choose from. Each answer choice corresponds to a different color. If all of the correct answer choices are chosen, then their final picture will be colored correctly to reflect complete mastery of the content.
To be successful with this activity, students should be able to:
•identify moon phases that occur before or after a given moon phase (time increments given include: 3-4 days, 1 week, 10 days, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, and one month)
•identify a moon phase when provided with a picture
•correctly sequence all 8 moon phases
•be familiar with the location of the moon phases in relation to the Earth and Sun
•Note: it is suggested that students draw and label a moon phase diagram to use for this activity.
This could be used as a quick assessment, a homework assignment, additional practice, extra credit, or for early finishers. These are also great for days when you have to be out of the classroom - a sub can easily take over this lesson!
