The moon itself doesn't emit any light like the sun. What we envision when we see the moon is sunlight reflected off the moon. The phases of the moon explain how much of the moon appears to us on Earth to be lit up by the sun. This can be a difficult concept for this age, however; at Presidium it became easier and an intriguing learning experience for our young explorers of Grade 3, with some fun filled activities. Students were told to observe the moon on a daily basis for a month prior to this activity. An experiential learning process was followed wherein few models were made by our Presidians to explain the entire process. Afterwards, students made and demonstrated by pasting shapes of several stages of moon on black construction paper provided to them and named them from no moon to crescent, first quarter, Gibbous and full moon waxing and waning. It had been a fabulous experience to explore and learn all about the moon cycle.
