Phases of the Moon Bookmarks with Journal

One of our favorite subjects in the space theme is the moon! It is something you can study at any time and learn a lot from!

I also like that you can watch the moon at any time during the year! It is a fun study that kids can have fun with.

I thought that phases of the moon bookmarks would be great to have while we are studying the moon. It gives them something to look at while we watch the changes in the moon.

My girls have been so excited about it looking at the moon. I thought some bookmarks with the different shapes of moons might be fun to have.

We have also been reading the book The Moon Book. We love all of her non-fiction books. They are great to learn with. Plus gives us details about the moon and the changes.

We are also reading Midnight on the Moon (Magic Tree House, No. 8). This gives us a fun fiction book to read.

They flipped through bookmarks and looked at the different types of moons before we started our observations. There are two sets of the bookmarks: northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere. I did want to try and make sure I got something for both. I printed the ones that we would be using.

Over the last week days, we started our watch of the moon for a month. It has been fuzzy and cloudy, but we have got to see it a few days.

After we have been outside we head in and record information about what we saw and the date. It has been loads of fun to do. We also noted if the weather did not allow us to look at the moon. We drew clouds over the moon for that day.
