Teaching the moon phases can be a difficult Earth Science topic when we don’t have our students at school during the night time hours.  This FREE resource allows your students to see the moon phases daily in a technology center in your classroom.  What are some ways that you could use this moon tool in your science instruction? Post your replies below!  We can all learn from one another.

I saw this crescent moon last night around dusk…there was a very thin sliver of visible moon (at the bottom) that made the moon look like it was smiling!

Thanks for sharing Trey! I am so glad that the photo accurately matches the amount of the moon that is illuminated by the sun’s rays depending on where the Earth is in orbit around the Sun. If the pattern continues, then when do you think we will have a Full Moon?
