When we look up in the sky at night and observe the moon, we are seeing the sunlight that is reflected on the moon. As it circles the Earth, we see only a portion of the lit up side. We read a book called Moon In A Month by Tracy Nelson Maurer.
The class was paired off and in charge of cutting out the phases of the moon and properly labeling and gluing them on the Moon Phases sheet. All this is in preperation of the main activity using OREO’S!!!!!
They will discover that creating the moon phases is more tempting than they thought!
