Summary:Making direct observations of the moon's changing shape throughout the month is an important part of understanding the pattern of moon phases. This journal activity can serve as a way for students to record their observations of the moon over time. The detail in their illustrations are not as important as the fact that they went outside and observed the moon with their own eyes several times throughout the month.
