Create a box that holds a moon mobile.
This clever Moon Phase box mobile will introduce and reinforce the phases of the Earth’s Moon. Students will also learn how to create a box from a piece of paper.
Students will learn how to make a box while reinforcing the waning and waxing of the Moon phases. Discuss how the position of the Sun and Earth show the amount of illuminated surface of the Moon as seen from Earth. As the Moon waxes, more of the illuminated surface can be seen. As the Moon wanes, less of the Moon is illuminated.
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
