Moon Study in First Grade

The first grade recently studied the moon.  We observed and recorded the moon daily in our journals.  We were lucky to see a full moon this month that was a SUPER MOON (the closest to the earth), a BLOOD-RED MOON, and a LUNAR ECLIPSE!  What a treat!

As part of our study, we created craters in our moon, used a styrofoam ball to simulate the changes in the shape of the moon, and discovered patterns in the moon phases from our recorded observations. The phases of the moon are one of the many patterns in nature,  a monthly pattern we can all enjoy!
