Field Trip to the Moon. Educator's Guide. EG-2007-09-120-MSFC
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
The Field Trip to the Moon program uses an inquiry-based learning approach that fosters team building and introduces students to careers in science and engineering. The program components include a DVD and classroom investigations. The compelling DVD (not included here) provides essential information about Earth and the Moon. The hands-on activities, which take up where the show leaves off, motivate students to use their cooperative learning skills to design a self-sufficient lunar station. Working in teams, students develop critical thinking skills, problem-solving techniques, and an understanding of complex systems as they discuss solutions to the essential questions they are presented. This educator's guide includes classroom investigation procedures, questions to guide student investigations, material list, and worksheets.
