Phases of the moon for kids

The History Channel had this valuable, 3-minute video explanation of the phases. It also discusses eclipses. National Geographic also had this "Moon 101" clip, a good summary of what they've already learned; it (of course) mentions how many billions of years ago they believe the earth was created, so be aware. Here's a wordless animation of the phases; maybe by the end of the week your kids will be able to tell the different phases!

Get yer groove on with this video on the phases of the moon--made for kids with some fun animation. (There a few spelling errors, but your kids will probably like it.) Sites with ideas to teach the phases:

You can also find the current state of the moon based on your location.
