This craftivity was created to put a little fun into your lessons on the moon. Depending on your preference, you can print on color paper or print on regular paper and have the students color it. I have provided two different pages of apps for you to choose from or mix and match. This will depend on your curriculum and classroom needs. Simply copy, and then have them cut out the “apps.”
These terms are used as "apps:" *moon *New Moon *Full Moon *Waning Crescent *Waxing Crescent *Waning Gibbous *Waxing Gibbous *First Quarter *Last Quarter *Revolution *29 days *Phases *Satellite *Telescope *Lunar *Lunar Eclipse *Solar Eclipse *Crater
Then have students glue down just the top portion where it folds on the dotted line. Under the flap have students write facts about that particular app. Students can then color the iPhone and/or cut it out. Finally, if desired, provide students with the practice sheets to practice identifying the phases of the moon.
It is my hope that your students will not only benefit from this activity that reinforces these concepts, but will also enjoy it.

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation. I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
