Exploring the Moon: A Teacher's Guide with Activities for Earth and Space Sciences.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC.
This educational guide concerns exploring the moon. Activities are divided into three units: Pre-Apollo, Learning from Apollo, and The Future. These correspond, at least roughly, to exercises that can be done before the Lunar Sample Disk (available from NASA) arrives to the school (Pre-Apollo), while it is there (Learning from Apollo), and after it has been returned to NASA (The Future). Activities include: (1) "Moon ABCs Fact Sheet"; (2) "Rock ABCs Fact Sheet"; (3) "Progress in Lunar Science Chart"; (4) "Nearside of the Moon--Apollo Landing Sites"; (5) "Distance to the Moon"; (6) "Diameter of the Moon"; (7) "Reaping Rocks"; (8) "The Lunar Disk"; (9) "Apollo Landing Sites"; (10) "Regolith Formation"; (11) "Lunar Surface"; (12) "Differentiation"; (13) "Impact Craters"; (14) "Clay Lava Flows"; (15) "Lava Layering"; (16) "Lunar Landing Sites"; (17) "Lunar Roving Vehicle"; (18) "Moon Anomalies"; (L9) "Lunar Land Use"; (20) "Life Support Systems"; and (21) "Lunar Biospheres".
