Moon Phases For Kids, Montessori Science At Home

Xander is crazy about the moon so we started by observing and recording phases.  

I created these moon phase tracking sheets with MS Publisher and a free clip art image.  There are many of these types of sheets floating around, but I really wanted to leave out the black background to save ink.
We also made a Moon phase flip book flip book, again without the black background.

This was a cloudy night, and he couldn't see the moon!! So we found it online!

Creating his flip book!  He cut the pages, and coloured the phases in black coloured pencil.

This is an amazing interactive I found on Pinterest you can check out the site here.  We loved this explanation of the phase it was easy for Xander to read and understand, really well done!!

Then we moved on to out Moon Phase - 3 part cards, from Montessori for Learning.  The set included definition cards.  He decided to use our bulletin board set to arrange the moon phases around the earth.

Ava LOVES 3 part cards and joined in helping to match the control cards.

Working hard at recording....
