Learning at Home

Man in the Moon

You Will Need:

Make a Moon book with Black construction paper and white chalk or any paper and a marker

Directions:

Go outside each night for a month. Have your child draw a picture of the moon. Try to let your child be the first to notice the different shape. When she notices it, ask questions about the changes. “What is changing about the moon? Can you find it every night? Is it in the same place every night? Does it look the same at different times of the same night?” Younger children will not be able to understand the concepts involved with reflected light, orbit of the moon and earth etc. They only need to understand that it changes because it moves.

Tip:

Share the peacefulness of night. Talk about your day while you are outside. Notice the sounds and smells of the evening. Go for a walk or put a quilt on the grass to lay on while you search the sky.
