Educational tool for blind children and their educators with the shape of the moon. Left space to 3D print or stick braille letters of your language. Moreover we have added the moon alone if you want to experiment in other ways with it, or as we propose that you would glue it on wood or plexiglass. We have discovered VI persons love it especially wood. Last but not least we have added a hole in order to tie multiple of them with a small rope, since we have more of them to come.

Lesson Plan and Activity
How to use
Always present it to the student in the proper direction. Explain that the moon has phases and this is how it looks on it's waning crescent. Make sure your student understands that the moon is a sphere that this is the projection that we can see, when the sun lights the moon at a certain angle.
If you select to print only the moon without its base you could need a small wooden tile or a plexiglass tile.
