Mrs. Alanis - Moon PhasesThe students in Mrs. Alanis’ 2nd Grade class worked on observing and recording the patterns of objects in the sky. They learned about the pattern of the phases of the moon through a variety of hands-on activities, including making their own cookie moons. The students used Oreo cookies to recreate and sequence the eight phases of the moon. After completing this lesson, students were able to understand that the moon has different phases, and discuss the different ways the moon looks throughout the month.
