Library provides lunar learning

REED CITY — Children were in for a treat on July 22 during a learning session about the phases of the moon.

Amy Shank of the Reed City Area District Library taught children about phases of the moon and even incorporated chocolate sandwich cookies into the instruction.

In the morning session, pre-schoolers through first graders read several stories about the moon, were able to see a demonstration of how the moon goes around the earth and made their own book about the moon, reinforcing what they learned. They also enjoyed a couple of sweet treats.

Second to sixth graders explored diagrams of moon phases and saw a lighted demonstration of how the moon revolves around the Earth. They made a slightly modified book featuring phases of the moon and sculpted the center of cookies into the various phases.
