  • 1. The Phases of the Moon Different Faces in the Night
  • 2. We can see three different faces of the moon:
    • Full Moon
    • Quarter Moon
    • Crescent Moon
  • 3. Like the earth, half of the moon is always lighted by the sun.
    • Also like the Earth, half of the moon is completely dark.
    • The moon does not really change, it travels around the Earth.
    • The different faces that we see are really different sides of the moon.
  • 4. New Moon
    • When the moon is in between the sun and the Earth, we cannot see the moon. This part of the moon is in the shade.
    • This is called a new moon .
  • 5. Full Moon
    • When the Earth is in between the moon and the sun, we see the whole part of the moon which is lit up by the sun.
    • This is called a full moon .
  • 6. Quarter Moon
    • When the moon is above or below the Earth, we can only see half of the lit area of the moon.
    • This is called a quarter or half moon .
  • 7. Crescent Moon
    • When the moon is in between the new moon and the half moon, we are only able to see a little sliver of the lighted side of the moon.
    • This is called a crescent moon .
  • 8.
    • As the moon grows larger, towards becoming a full moon, it is called a waxing gibbous moon .
  • 9.
    • As the moon grows smaller, away from being a full moon, it is called a waning gibbous moon .
