We cannot express how excited we are to present this wooden phases of the moon activity board! We wanted to create a more hands on learning experience vs. merely putting puzzle pieces into place. We wanted more of a tactile, fun, and exploratory experience by allowing the child to create the respective shapes themselves. It was also very important for use to create this in the shape of a circle vs. a linear line or a rectangular shape like many standard pieces available in the market. Children are better able to understand the phases of the moon when used in a circular pattern.
Use our wooden phases of the moon activity board with your favorite moon books, flash cards, or worksheets and have your child form the shapes and insert them into the space with fun sensory manipulative and loose parts.
This is a larger piece and is approximately 10" in diameter.
Fun Manipulatives to Use With our Wooden Phases of the Moon Activity Board:
