                                                       Where’s the Moon?

    Third graders at G.L.H. Johnson are learning all about Earth’s natural cycles. Among these topics are the cycle of the seasons, day and night, tides, and the moon’s cycle. With all of these natural cycles to learn we needed something to help learn them. To assist us in keeping the moon’s cycle straight we use some movement to help us!  Students were assigned a phase of the moon and given a label to wear around their neck. They went around and quizzed each other on their ability to identify the correct moon phase. Students really enjoyed this hands on activity that helped them get their phases and their order committed to memory.
