Phases of the Moon

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.
