Of course I found an activity on Pinterest using oreo cookies to show the different moon phases. All week they were excited and looking forward to this 'special activity' that I told them was coming on Friday. It was such an engaging activity and extremely hands-on. I think more of the oreo creme ended up on the students instead of the cookies. Oh well. I even caught a couple kiddos who were already eating their cookies as they walked out the door. I don't know if they'll still remember each of the phases of the moon... but I know they had fun!
I took a few pictures while they were working... turned out a little blurry, but it gives you the idea.
This is what the finished product 'should have' looked like:
