Fantastic Moon resources

This week is my first state test in reading.  I know the kids are ready, but it is always a nail biter at the end.  Don't you agree??  In science we have been studying moon phases and have come across some wonderful on-line sites that I would love to share with you. 

Have you seen????  Moon Phases from the History Channel that is available on You Tube?

What about this site? Neo Kids.... This has a great drag and drop to practice labeling the phases.  Great for a smart board.  They also have several short clips that are engaging!

Seeds of Science uses this awesome simulation!  We love it... you can simulate the lunar phases with an animation while watching the moon phases on the side.

Another favorite website is the Farmer's Almanac. It has been updated to meet the needs of 21st Century learners with videos, pictures and simulations of the moon.  Enjoy it!
