In “The Little House”, The Little House spoke about how she loved watching the moon grow from a thin new moon to a full moon. Use this opportunity to teach your little learner about the various moon phases with this mat. Use any material you think will engage your learner the best. You can use playdough, cookies, or paper to form it into each moon phase.
This resource is an extension activity for our Weekly Storybook-based Activity Guide to the book “The Little House.”
