Outing #12: To the Moon!

Earth’s Moon

EXPLORE

Today we decided to visit our closest celestial neighbor, the Moon.

To join us, start with the National Geographic’s Earth 101 video.

Then, Walk to the Moon with David Bowie and the NPR Skunk Bear team to get a sense for how far away the moon really is.

To learn why the Moon appears to change shape, tune into the SciShow Kids Moon episode.

Bonus: Check out this interesting NASA recreation of the first time humans watched the Earth rise from the Moon.

DISCUSS

  • Would you want to travel to the moon? Why or why not?

  • What do you see when you look at the Moon?

  • How do you think life on Earth would be different if we didn’t have a moon? If we had more than one?

DO
