Virtual Ramadan Lesson and Moon Phases Activity

Usually a few weeks before the start of Ramadan, I email my sons’ teachers to ask if we can share our special holiday in the classroom. Each year I hold my breath for the response, as many Muslims do when putting themselves out there. Thankfully, every year my request is received warmly. Alhamdulillah.

This year my son’s first-grade teacher wanted to include Ramadan in the grade-level curriculum for all first graders (I belong to a very diverse public school), so I created some resources with STEM tie-in. Since I am not allowed to visit the classroom, due to Covid restrictions, I recorded everything and sent the lesson to our teacher.

Here are the worksheets featured in the video!
