    Moon phases diagram: It's probably easiest to understand the moon cycle in this order: new moon and full moon, first quarter and third quarter, and the phases in between.

  • Library 10th The moon phases calendar is an easy way to find out the lunar phase for any given day. Select a month and year from the drop-down, click 'Go,' and it will show you approximately what the moon will (or did) look like for any day that month. Also, links to additional information about moon phases, tides, etc.

fun way to teach the phases of the moon! But I think some of the oreos need to be rotated a little ... might help to have an object as the sun so they can see where the light is coming from. Could also get a couple wall balls from PE for the Earth and moon and use a flash light as the sun for the actual lesson and use this activity for interactive reinforcement!

Students use Oreo cookies to create the moon phases on a paper plate. Great
