Learning Facts with Fiction!!!

Learning phases of the moon just became evident and fascinating. The teacher engaged the students in the task of learning by doing and afterwards to verbalize what they learned. The activity gave them a great visual as to how the moon revolves around the Earth with changing phases!
This is a perfect activity to review the vocabulary words revolve, rotate, brighter, bigger, pretty, dark etc.! The students analysed that since the moon orbits around the Earth every 27 days, these phases repeat over and over. It’s a cycle!
