How can I better improve my student's understanding of the phases of the moon? Are there other activites that are more inquiry based for my students?

I recently discovered a fun and unique way to learn about the phases of the moon using Oreo cookies (or off brand sandwich cookies). Students are actively engaged in learning about the different phases of the moon by using Oreo cookies to construct each phase of the moon. I have attached a link to a free resource by Rockin' Teacher Materials-Hilary Lewis on Teachers Pay Teachers.

I hope this helps!

What misconceptions have you noticed your students showing/what sort of understanding do they need more instruction in?
