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!
Phases of the moon, this helps the students understand while making this chart, what they look like. Science standards: 4. The Physical Setting, A. Universe, Grade 4: The patterns of stars in the sky stay the same, although they appear to move across the sky nightly, and different stars can be seen in different seasons.
Oreo Cookies to Teach the Phases of the Moon! I love this idea! Learning this phases of the moon can be quite boring, but this would certainly keep the students attention! Although, they should not be allowed to eat ALL of their cookies!! ;) *Sarah Graf
