This Tuesday, the children of the third grade learned about the shapes of the moon.
They discovered these different shapes by drawing the moon in their science notebooks. The black side of the green ball is the side of the moon we always see. The children had to draw what they saw of the ‘black’ side of the moon: a hole circle, a half circle, nothing, … Later on, we gave these drawings the right names: full moon, first quarter moon, last quarter moon, new moon.

Each group has four players, they get a division problem and the first child of each group runs as fast as they can to the other side, where they collect the correct amount of rocks for the answer. THen, the run back! Whoever sits first and raises their right hand and shows the correct answer by the amount of rocks collected wins a point for the team.
