Each day have the kids look in the sky for the Moon. When they observe it, have them sketch a picture of the Moon and record the date and time that the Moon was seen. After a month (28 days) of observing they should start to notice a pattern.
The children will need to look for the Moon during the daytime for some phases and in the evening for other phases. Early mornings and late afternoons are also the times that some phases will be observable! Again patterns can be observed.

A good way to learn about the Moon Phases is to keep a Moon Observation Journal.
