Oreo Cookies for Moon Phases

Assess students' understanding of moon phases and enjoy a sugary treat with this post I saw on 4thGradeFrolics.  She concluded her unit on the moon with this activity.  Students illustrated the earth in the center of a paper plate, and labeled the edges with different moon phases.  

Next, they used four Oreo cookies and a spoon to represent the respective phases, the remaining frosting on the cookies showing the waxing and waning moon.  These little projects were cute and edible, plus they showed her class' understanding of their unit.  Try it!
