The girls and I did a fun and delicious science lesson with Oreos. We were reading Fly Guy presents Why, Fly Guy (a BIG Question & Answer book) by Tedd Arnold. We had the best time talking about the phases of the moon and I remember seeing Pinterest Pins about using Oreos to teach about the phases of the moon so we had to give it a try.
All you need is:
Paper to write on
Open your Oreos and place them on a plate as shown below. You will need to leave the Oreo creme inside in different ways to represent the phases of the moon. See my picture below…
It took some time to make the Oreos look like this but, it was a lot of fun completing the phases and getting the picture. The girls were excited to eat the Oreo pieces we did not need to use. It was a delicious treat, they love Oreos.
After we were done snacking. I drew out all the phases of the moon on a piece of paper and we talked about how the moon changes in the month from the beginning of a new moon to the end of the moon phase. Here is a picture reference from the Fly Guy presents Why, Fly Guy (a BIG Question & Answer book) .
This is a fun activity and I was inspired by the Pinterest Pin below to make this activity with the girls.
We love learning about the Moon and highly recommend reading Fly Guy presents Why, Fly Guy (a BIG Question & Answer book) it is filled wth so many great and interesting facts for kids to learn and we love that the book stars Fly Guy amd Buzz.
In the end they were able to eat the Oreos and I think that was their favorite part. A hands on lesson with a yummy in your tummy ending.
