Space Science for Children: All about the Moon [Videotape].
This 23-minute videotape gives children, grades K-4, a close-up look at the moon in order to answer the following questions: (1) Why does the moon appear different every night? (2) What does the moon look like up close? (3) What is it like to walk on the moon? and (4) Could we live on the moon someday? A hands-on activity designed to demonstrate the phases of the moon is described and the formation of the moon's landscape is discussed. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Content Standards for Earth Science: Properties of Earth Materials, Objects in the Sky, and Changes in Earth and Sky.
