This activity features a set of incomplete flash card cutouts to help students identify and sequence the phases of the moon. Students will sketch the appearance of the moon under the phase title for the front side. They will use that cut out set to sequence the periods of the lunar cycle from any designated starting point. Students will sketch the moon on the backside without the name, and that side to quiz themselves on the phase name.

This PDF file will become editable upon conversion to Microsoft Word using an Adobe Acrobat Reader DC program. The phases are numbered from one through eight on the front side of the second set, starting with the new moon.

This activity complements the following lessons I have previously published about the moon.
