    Five Moon Activities for Kids to make and do at home.

    Phases of the Moon

    Foldable for the earth's rotation around the sun - the reasons for the seasons

    Students will create this diagram showing the phases of the moon. They can use oreos to create this. They can then record the same diagram with markers and eat the oreos, if allowed.

    This video comes straight from NSTA (National Science Teaching Association) and gives a fun lesson on how you can teach the phases of the moon. NSTA has their own YouTube channel where you can find tons of different activities and demonstrations that are great visuals for students while learning. It's a great resource for teachers to use if you're struggling with a topic in your classroom. It helps to look at the lesson from a different perspective.
