Why A Unit Study All About The Moon For Our Homeschool?
Our daughter Emily is fascinated by all things Space. We have done Space studies in the past and this year Emily asked to continue with that. A moon unit study is a natural extension of all our studies about Outerspace.
The moon is easily recognized by kids because it’s the biggest object in our night sky. A homeschool unit study all about the moon is a great way to introduce Space, astronomy, and all kinds of fun topics related to Space.
Everything You Need For Learning About The Moon, All In One Unit Study
I love this unit study all about the moon because it’s all in one. Everything you need to teach your kiddos about the moon is included. You can explore and learn without having to gather tons of outside resources and materials, I’ve done all the leg work for you. Check out some of the cool resources included in this moon unit study:
Moon Sensory Bin
Sensory bin activities are perfect for younger learners, but they’re beneficial for older kids too. This moon sensory tray will engage your child in lots of ways while letting them explore and learn through play. Plus, multisensory learning experiences like this one are an excellent way to encourage cognitive growth and build critical thinking skills.
Looking for a moon phase unit study? I’ve included some cool opportunities for your homeschoolers to learn all about the phases of the moon in this complete all-in-one moon unit study. You’ll get hands-on moon phases activities, a YouTube playlist, a read-aloud summary with discussion questions for building reading comprehension, and printable activities.
The moon is the focus of many legends and myths. I’ve included some fun Native American lunar lore in this all-in-one unit study all about the moon. Your homeschoolers will have fun learning about lunar lore with videos, read aloud summaries, and custom coloring pages.
Moon Themed Games
Gameschooling is a fun and exciting way to teach your homeschoolers critical thinking skills. Get creative and get ready to learn all kinds of new things about the moon with these moon themed games:

I’ve also included a special section just for older homeschoolers. These extension activities include research projects, online quizzes, and hands-on projects all about the moon, the Apollo missions, famous astronauts, and more.
How We Plan To Use This Moon Unit Study In Our Homeschool This Year
So how are we going to use this moon unit study in our homeschool? Our plan is to incorporate one lesson a day in the afternoons. We will study the moon with this all-in-one moon unit study in addition to our Space unit study together as a family.
I’m hoping this moon unit study will be a fun way for us to dive deep into Emily’s interest in all things Space. We will start by watching a video from the YouTube playlist and completing the printable activity that matches with the video. Then, we can work together as a family on one of the fun hands-on moon projects or playing a moon themed game together.
When we get to that month’s full moon, I’m excited to complete the full moon activities and lunar lore for the month. By waiting until the full moon arrives that month, we will be able to actually observe the moon at the same time we are studying it. Making those connections is one of my favorite aspects of homeschooling.
