Earth and Space: Phases of the Moon
Use this complete Phases of the Moon KS2 lesson pack to teach your Year 5 class about how we see different amounts of the Moon's lit surface at different points in the lunar month.
The lesson slides will guide your class through identifying and naming the eight different phases of the Moon and will help them correctly match and order the phases in their independent work. Using the included printable resources to extend and support them, your KS2 class will create a spinning model and/or discuss in detail how they are able to identify each phase of the Moon.
