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.
I found this the other day when looking for a quick science lesson to do with my tutee at the Boys and Girls Club. What a fun way to teach the different moon phases! Although this is geared toward second grade, I think that it can easily be tweaked to use in all elementary grade levels. 9977
