Space Explorers: Craters on the Moon


Activity Public

Ever wondered how the moon got its craters? For this activity, we will build our own lunar surfaces. We will then make our very own craters by dropping different objects onto the surface, and learn how these different objects impact our surface. After we make our own lunar surfaces, we will (virtually) travel to the moon, where we are going to use our new knowledge of craters to discuss how the craters on the moon formed. The activity is aimed at kids 8-12, and will use common household objects. It will be held virtually through Zoom. Please join us!
