Moon Journal


Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 9.50.12 AM
Your child will be given a “Moon Journal” to keep in their blue folders from March 25-April 26, so they will be able to observe the moon either during recess or at home and draw an accurate picture of the shape of the moon they saw that day.  This should give the kids a chance to see the moon as it goes through all of its phases (full, three quarter, half, crescent, and new).  Undoubtedly there will be some cloudy days that prevent them from seeing the moon, so they can either draw clouds or visit the following website which displays the phase of the moon according to your location/time zone:  http://www.moonpage.com/index.html
Here’s another great link to see when the moon is rising, setting, and which phase it is in:  Moonrise, moonset, and moon phases

This is an important part of the 1st grade science curriculum so thanks for your help and encouragement!  I’ll collect their Moon Journal paper on April 26.  Happy Moon Watching!
