Make Oreo Moon phases

To start, download and print this page.

Then open up some Oreo cookies and scrape off the creme filling to make the four major phases of the Moon.

These Oreo "Moons" show how the Moon looks from Earth during these phases:

New Moon:
First Quarter:
Full Moon:
Third Quarter:

You can make this Moon phase calendar and calculator to figure out what phase the Moon is in.

Or, you can go outside and look up!
