Learning Enquiry: Does the moon change shape?

After learning about how we see the different phases of the moon from Earth, we used Oreo cookies to demonstrate our understanding.

At the end of the lesson, we were even allowed to eat some fresh cookies!

We also shaded a diagram at the bottom of our sheet to show what half of the moon can be seen from space.
