PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students need to know the effects resulting from cyclical movements of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. This activity is great for helping students predict the sequence of events in the lunar cycle and it's FUN!

Teacher simply needs to print out the moon phase dice on cardstock and assemble prior to activity. Students will roll the dice and record the phase they rolled - both the name and image. Then they will be prompted to draw and name the phase that occurred before that phase and after that phase with a variety of prompts (3-4 days before/after, 1 week before/after, 10 days before/after, 1 month before/after, and calendar dates in the future). I have also included a modified version for lower-level classes/students.

2015 UPDATE: I've added a 3rd version in which students identify the location of their rolled moon phase in a Sun/Earth/Moon diagram.

After this interactive activity, students will be more comfortable predicting moon phases on a calendar. Great for standardized test prep, too!
