Encourage your child to explore and track how the moon changes. Ask your child why he thinks the moon looks different at different times of the month?
stages of the moon
  1. When you go outside, look up to the sky. During the day, you may see clouds, the sun, and the moon. At night, you may see stars and the moon. Each time you see the moon, it may be in a different part of the sky. When the moon looks like a round circle, it is called a full moon. What does the moon look like in the night sky? Does it look the same in the day?

  2. With an adult’s permission, go outside tonight to look at the moon. Draw a picture of what it looks like. You can also write what you notice about the moon. Repeat this for a few days, then look back at your drawings. What do you notice about the moon?
