To learn more about the phases of the moon:
- Watch this beautiful video on YouTube. Set to the soundtrack of Beethoven’s Sonata No 14, an animated moon works its ways through all of its phases.
- Stop by Kids Activities Blog for another fun project you and your kids can do to chart the moon and learn about the different phases.
- MoonConnection.com has a moon phase calendar you can use for reference. You can switch between the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere to get the correct moon calendar for your location.
