Over the summer, my oldest (6 years old) and I spent a night camping in our backyard. One of our favorite activities was staring at the night sky, looking for constellations and gazing at the moon. Wanting to study the moon further, we decided to start a moon journal over winter when the moon rises before bedtime.
As a lifelong learner, I’m always looking for experiences to share with my kids where I am not only the teacher but the student as well. Constructing a moon journal has been just that. We’ve learned that each month the moon has a name and where the term, “once in a blue moon” comes from.
