Fifth Graders' Phases of the Moon

  • Fifth graders learned about the phases of the moon.

    They learned:

    ~that "waxing" means getting bigger,

    ~thatt "waning" means getting smaller,

    ~that there are eight phases of the moon: new moon - waxing crescent moon - waxing half moon - waxing gibbous moon - full moon - waning gibbous moon - waning half moon, waning crescent moon.

    Some students created the phases of the moon using Oreo cookies. 

    Their creations are in the slideshow and below. Enjoy!
