This Moon Phase Flip Books activity & project also includes:
What better way to study the moon phases than to see them in action? The directions on the handout only have kids cut out and tape on the moon phases to make the flipbook, but it would be even more powerful to include the name of each phase and some sort of mnemonic to help them remember each one (e.g. wax on; wane, wane, go away). Follow the flipbook activity with the attached lesson, in which the moon phases are demonstrate using styrofoam balls and flashlights.
