Study the phases of the moon then test your knowledge with this exciting in-class moon game!
The lunar month is 29.5 days long. During this time, the moon orbits the earth. As it travels, we see different portions of the moon at night, depending on where the moon is in relation to the sun and the earth. The different views we see are called the phases of the moon. Each lunar month starts with the first phase of the moon called new moon.
With your class, research the 8 phases of the moon. Find the name of each phase and a picture of what the moon looks like during that time. Why does the moon appear to change with each phase?
Play the moon game with your class! Split up into four teams and choose a color of Crayola Dry-Erase Markers or Dry-Erase Crayons for your team. Select one member of each team to go up to the class whiteboard on each turn. When the teacher calls out a phase of the moon, each contestant will draw that phase of the moon on the whiteboard with your team’s color. The first contestant to correctly draw the phase wins a point for his or her team!
