Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:05 PM in 1st graders learning about moons
I am in a course in college that has a segment on learning about moons. We have the great luxury of having QR codes that allow us to see different phases of the moon from different locations and times via safe websites. However, are there any other suggestions to show moon phases so children can see the process of waxing and wanning.

I found this journal to be scientific with lots of information that helped me understand the moon phase process. Personally, I will not be able to go into as much depth when doing a lesson on moon phases with my first graders. However, I still find the material helpful that way I can be sure I have my facts straight. The terminology is helpful for any teacher who may need a refresher or a resource to help develop their own lesson.

I am a future teacher working in a first grade classroom this semester. My second major is actually General Science so this is not my first time working with NGGS. I love how helpful NGGS is with helping to prepare the teacher for working with students. I found this video to be super informative and helpful by giving specific ideas on how to effectively teach and engage students. The only downside to the video was some technological issues when it was shot live and remained in the recording other than that it was great!
