In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events.
In this activity, learners will use Google Sky to observe features of the night sky and share their observations.
In this experiment, learners construct an equilateral triangle using graph paper, a pencil, protractor and ruler. They also make a "laser triangle" using a laser pointer and front-silvered mirrors.
In this team design challenge (page 19-24 of PDF), learners "land" a model Lunar Rover in a model Landing Pod (both previously built in activities #3 and #4 in PDF).
Through a series of simple body movements, learners gain insight into the relationship between time and astronomical motions of Earth (rotation about its axis, and orbit around the Sun), and also abou
In this team design challenge (page 2-10 of PDF), learners design and build a model of a Lunar Transport Rover that will carry equipment and people on the surface of the Moon.
This quick demonstration (on page 11 of PDF) allows learners to understand why scientists think water ice could remain frozen in always-dark craters at the poles of the Moon.
In this team design challenge (page 11-18 of PDF), learners design and build a Landing Pod for a model Lunar Rover (previously built in activity on page 1-10 of PDF).
In this activity, learners perform 20 arm curls with cans that simulate the weight of beans on Earth versus the weights of the same number of beans on the Moon and in space.
In this activity, learners drop impactors onto layers of graham crackers!
In this activity, learners investigate the Moon's infancy and model how an ocean of molten rock (magma) helped shape the Moon that we see today.
In this activity, learners discover that the Moon, like Earth, is made up of layers of different materials. Learners work in teams to make models of the interiors of the Moon and Earth.
In this activity, learners use a simple 3D model to discover why the Moon has phases.
In this activity, learners model ancient lunar impacts using water balloons.
In this activity, pairs of learners model how scientists use craters to determine the ages of lunar surfaces. One partner keeps time while the other creates a painting for the other to interpret.
This fun and simple hands-on astronomy activity lets learners explore the difference between telescope magnification and resolution.
In this activity (page 18 of PDF), learners will measure the volume of impact craters created by projectiles of different masses.
In this activity (on page 5 of PDF), learners use dry ice and household materials to make scientifically accurate models of comets.
In this online game, learners attempt to send a rocket ship to various targets. Learners can adjust the angle and thrust of the rocket before it is launched.
