The phases of the moon felt board is an amazing activity for teaching kids about our moon. It comes with 3-part cards and a felt pouch for easy storage. Each of the phases has a name and a different shape.
The kids can learn which side must be illuminated when it's waxing, or growing and which side lights up when it's waning, or reducing. The Montessori cards will help in reinforcing the learning.
The earth and sun pieces all help orient the kids as far as why each side lights up. You have two choices for the 3-part cards and pouch as well, large or small.
This listing includes:
1| 1 Felt mat, 45x31cm (18x12 inches)
