We studied the phases of the moon last week. The moon changes as it orbits the Earth. There are 8 phases the moon goes through. The phases go in this order: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, waning crescent and then it cycles all over again.
|This is a diagram that we made with Oreo cookies to show the phases of the moon.|
|This is a phases of the moon flip-book. When you open a flap it tells you about each phase of the moon.|
|We made pictures of the 8 phases of the moon for our classroom.|
