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 is a cute cheat sheet type of thing to have students make so they can refer to it for facts about the solar system. Could use these facts for their imaginative story as well. KS

Great model for the Sun, Earth, & Moon system.  You just need three brads.  It is recommended to print on lite paper so that brads go thru easier. Or you could use a holepunch

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.
