A moon unit is great at any time, but this week is an especially good time to study the moon. July 16, 1969, was the liftoff of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Mission. July 20 is the anniversary of the first walk on the moon.
I’ve published some astronomy posts before: ABC Letter Box and Astronaut Unit, Montessori-Inspired Astronomy Activities, and Montessori-Inspired Star and Constellation Unit. You’ll find lots of great astronomy activities there.
Here, I’ll list some specific Montessori-inspired moon unit studies along with some Montessori-inspired moon activities that have been published since my earlier posts.

If you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.
Please place the Montessori Monday button (using the code from the right sidebar) in your post or put a link back to this post.
