The students learned about Lunar New Year and how the celebration lasts 15 days because it follows the phases of the moon. This prompted the children to become very interested in the moon. They started to notice it more when we were outside. We quickly changed our curriculum to learn about the moon using OREO’s! It was a hit! The kids made moon sand, learned about the phases with the moon by using/eating Oreos and the letter “M,” for Moon! Sometimes we still find the kids making phases of the moon with their ritz crackers or in the sandbox!
