Moon Watch

As the skies have been clear at night recently, have you looked up and spotted the Moon? At the moment, there isn’t much Moon to see! The New Moon phase started on 24th March so currently we can only see a small part of the Moon. However, each night, we will see a little more.

For today’s activity, be a scientist and start a Moon chart. One key skill of being a scientist is making observations and recording results. Think about how best you can record how the Moon changes over time. At some point over the next two weeks, we see a full Moon. Make sure you note down that date and we can compare when we get back to school, or add your observations to your Google Classroom.

For some of our older children, if you’re really up for a challenge, think about why the Moon looks different each night. Does the Moon change size? Why is this happening?
