Transcript of virtual field trip: moon

What is the moon?
It's NOT cheese! It is more like a big mirror, reflecting the sun's light to earth. The moon moves with the Earth around the Sun. The moon does not look the same every night. Sometimes it is a full, bright circle. Other times it is half bright, half dark. And it can also be a crescent shape.

(think, pair, share) Does the moon stay in the same place in the sky all the time? How do you know?

YOUR MISSION
Today, we are going to the moon. You will watch videos and read amazing things to learn more about the moon. Your mission is to follow along and really imagine yourself on this trip! You each have a mission checklist. You will turn this in when you return to Earth for a grade. Now, off you go to explore and HAVE FUN 5...4...3...2...1...blast off!
The moon's different sizes and shapes are called phases. If you want to see how the moon changes for yourself, use this to help you track the moon this month at home!

In 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins went to the moon during a mission called Apollo 11. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to EVER visit the moon. As Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon, he famously said, "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind"
