This video comes straight from NSTA (National Science Teaching Association) and gives a fun lesson on how you can teach the phases of the moon. NSTA has their own YouTube channel where you can find tons of different activities and demonstrations that are great visuals for students while learning. It's a great resource for teachers to use if you're struggling with a topic in your classroom. It helps to look at the lesson from a different perspective.
This site gives the directions to make this project illustrating to students how the earth orbits the sun and how the moon goes along with. This would be a really great project to use in a science lesson to help students understand what moves around what in our solar system. ~ Lauren Feuling
This Earth, Sun, and Moon poster is designed to aide students in understanding that the Earth, Sun, and Moon have many similarities and also many differences. There are many facts stated within this poster. I had students research each one and come up with facts.
