PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Moon's Many Phases
by Tiny Space Adventures

A step-by-step guide to teaching and learning the phases of the moon!

Phases of the moon sometimes can be intimidating to teach and confusing for students to learn, but this lesson takes all the stress away from both teacher and student!

Working with a partner, build and use a 3-D model of the moon!

Three student activity pages guide children step by step to understand why the moon 'shrinks' and 'grows' based on the part of it that reflects sunlight and part of it that can be seen as it moves around the earth.

WOW! 10 student activity pages total! including reading comprehension, sequencing, matching, and predicting the lunar phases.

Students work individually to learn the basics and then with a partner while to reinforcing all concepts.

Background information is provided for the teacher as well as discussion prompts for classroom discussion while conducting the activity.

BONUS! Several ways for students to remember waxing vs. waning also included!

* Can easily be adapted to younger grades.





Meets Next Generation Science Standards for Middle School as well as Common Core for Reading Standards for Literacy in Science

MS ESS1-1 Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases of the sun and moon. (eclipses and seasons are not addressed in this lesson)
