Play is okay! tip
Your child's journey will take them through all the different phases of the moon. As they move the moon piece every day, they’ll see it travel around the earth and what it looks like on that day. At this point, your child will see that the moon orbits around the earth and that the orbit is elliptical. Use can use a candle and shadow play to intuitively demonstrate why the moon is the shape it is on any particular night.
