Join us on May 25th, at 4:00 p.m. for this Phases of the Moon event. After we read Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed, we will work together to create a “phases of the moon” STEAM craft. Supplies are limited, so please register here. Please be sure to include an EMAIL ADDRESS or PHONE NUMBER in your registration in order to be contacted to pick up your Kit for participation in the program. Our Grab & Go kits will include a paper plate, a template of the phases of the moon, and black and white construction paper. If you have black and white cookies, you can use those to follow along with our program.
This STEAM program will allow children and their caregivers to learn about the various phases of the moon. For example, a full moon occurs when the moon is on the opposite side of the earth from the sun, called opposition. A lunar eclipse can only happen at full moon.
To learn more, a post with information on our March StoryWalk, along with a suggested reading list that celebrates Women’s History Month and women in STEM fields, can be found here.
