- Moon Phases Activity
Students learn about the phases of the moon by acting them out.
- Whip Up a Moon-Like Crater
Whip up a moon-like crater with baking ingredients as a demonstration for students.
In this engineering design challenge, students design and build a shock-absorbing system that will protect two "astronauts" when they land.
- Roving on the Moon
In this engineering design challenge, students build a rubber-band-powered rover that can scramble across the room.
- Solar Oven
Students build a solar oven and learn about the importance of solar energy for establishing a lunar base in this engineering design challenge.
- Moon Lithograph
This two-sided handout includes an image of the moon on one side and facts on the other.
