Our The Moon lesson plan explores Earth’s moon in a captivating and information packed way. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to complete an interactive activity in which they draw and cut out 5 phases of the moon and then glue and label each of the moon’s phases. Students are also asked to match terms with their correct definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to list characteristics and facts about the Earth’s moon. The students will also be able to explain the causes of the moon’s phases.
