Scout's Friend the Moon
Have you ever noticed that the night sky changes all the time? As the planet rotates and encircles the sun, it looks like the stars change their position in the sky. Also, the moon waxes and wanes. Every month we see a full moon and each one has its own name. In February, we celebrate the arrival of the Snow Moon. All the names of the full moons have their roots in nature. Some other moon names are the Beaver moon, Flower moon, Strawberry moon and Wolf moon.
Perhaps you could go out on a night time nature walk to see the moon and stars. Take a minute to look up at the changing sky and notice what is there.
Is the sky clear or cloudy?
Can you see the stars twinkling in the sky?
How many can you count?
