This book taught us about the phases of the moon. This book did not discuss the gibbous moon, which I feel is an important one to teach my students...so I did.
I shared with them the 8 phases of the moon.
Instead of doing the worksheet that went with the book, I chose to do one of my favorite lessons with my students...Oreo Moon Phases! This was a super fun and yummy way to learn about the moon phases.
I sent home with my students a Moon Watchers work sheet as optional homework. This will give us a some real world experience. Of course I encouraged participation with a prize to anyone that returns their Moon Watchers sheet. Hey, what can I say...ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
