National Day Calendar Classroom - July - Moon
(Last Updated On: December 15, 2022)


Humans love to explore and one of the places we love to explore is space. This week in the Classroom, National Moon Day inspires us to study the moon. We’ve created a moon phase worksheet to help students learn about the moon and its phases. The moon orbits the Earth and is the Earth’s only natural satellite. When we look up at the sky, either during the night or day, we may see the moon in its various stages as it travels around the Earth.

We also include another Celebration Challenge to keep students celebrating all week long.


Download and print this week’s projects and give your students the opportunity to study the moon. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!

Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:

1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.

Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.


Have fun exploring the moon and taking on this week’s Celebration Challenge
