I'll Wax Your Gibbous

Owen makes up a lot of stuff, but the past few weeks, as the first graders have been studying the phases of the moon, he kept talking about the Gibbous phase (both waxing and waning). Did I fall asleep in elementary school science that week? I'll fess up to my ignorance, but here he is, schooling me via Oreos. I found the Oreo lesson online when I was educating myself so I can have a conversation with my child about science. I bought the Oreos because they were calling my name.

The young scientist in process (with a future Indiana Jones scratch thanks to a sister who is getting the hang of defending herself):
