Moon, YOU ROCK!

Instructional Resource

This lesson helps first grade students explore the phases of the Moon! With this lesson, students will build skills in pattern recognition as they observe, describe and predict the four phases of the Moon. Be sure to plan this lesson for a day that the Moon is clearly visible. This lesson should follow instruction on the performance expectation, 1-PS4-2, which addresses the concept that objects cannot be seen in the darkness unless illuminated.
