Have you ever seen the moon change shape in the sky from a thin crescent to a full moon then back again over a lunar month? There are eight named phases of the moon, and these cards are a fun way to help children learn them.

Kids can print and fold this Solar Eclipse booklet then maybe write a report about the eclipse detailing what they experienced during this amazing celestial event? They could also write some interesting facts about the eclipse or perhaps a poem?
