As Freddie received a telescope for Christmas we wanted to understand more about the moon. So we have created these free phases of the moon worksheets for you to print out.
I have to say that although these worksheets are definitely aimed at kids, I learned lots of things too!

Phases of the Moon Worksheet
Although there are 10 free pages to print out in these phases of the moon worksheets, there are actually only 8 phases of the moon!
Phases of the Moon In Order
- New moon
- Waxing crescent
- Waxing gibbous
- Full moon
- Waning gibbous
- Waning crescent
The other two worksheets are the phases of the moon and label the moon phases.
If the kids are interested even further in stargazing and finding more about the moon, I highly recommend investing in a good telescope. We have the Celestron Star – Sense one and it is super powerful. It takes a while to set up, but it is so much fun to look out on a clear night.
Of course, I can’t write about the phases of the moon without mentioning the NASA website. They have lots of free and interesting facts and go over things in more detail. So if you want even more resources I would definitely check them out.
For younger children, I am absolutely loving this Montessori phases of the moon puzzle. It lists all 8 phases and it is of excellent quality.

Make sure you choose the correct paper size and then click on the shrink to fit button. With all of our printables, they work better when printed on cardstock (this is the one we use and love.)
