Learning at Home

Man in the Moon

You Will Need:

Black construction paper, white chalk

Directions:

Go outside each night for a month. Have your child draw a picture of the moon. Try to let him be the first to notice the different shape each night. When he notices it, ask questions about the changes. Say things like, “What is changing about the moon?”; “Can you find it every night?”; “Is it in the same place every night?”; “Does it look the same at different times of the same night?” Younger children will not be able to understand the concepts involved with reflected light, orbit of the moon and earth, etc. They only need to understand that the moon changes each night because it moves.

Tip:

Share the peacefulness of night. Talk about your day and ask about your child’s day while you are outside. Help your child notice the sounds and smells of the evening. Go for a walk or put a quilt on the grass to lay on while you search the sky.
