Phases of the Moon for Kids

Introducing our beautiful set of Moon Phases Posters, featuring stunning photographs of the eight different phases of the moon. Each poster showcases the moon’s unique appearance as it travels through its monthly cycle, providing a beautiful and educational visual reference for any space.

Our set includes two posters, one for the Northern Hemisphere and one for the Southern Hemisphere, each displaying the moon phases as they are observed from that region. The posters are designed with high-quality, detailed photographs that accurately depict the moon’s appearance during each phase, making them a perfect educational tool for students.

How to Make the Most of Your Moon Phases Poster

  1. Print the posters and display them in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use ithem in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the posters, slide them into a clear sleeve, and hang them on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick! 

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
