Can anyone help Mr Phillips?

Can anyone help me? I have to teach a lesson all about the Moon but I don’t know anything about it.

It would be great if you could blog facts about the Moon and the Moon landings.

Thank you so much,

Mr Phillips

    Maybe you could do a lesson on the Moon,Sun and earth using a Football ( sun ), a tennisball as the earth and a bouncy ball as the moon to show roughly the size and scale of the solar system. Good luck with your lesson!! Here are some fun facts you could use:
    .The moon is over 4.5 million years old!
    .The moon moves towards the east in out sky by about 12 degrees each day.
    .Traveling by car to the moon it would take 130 days. By a rocket it would take 13 hours and by the speed of light it would take 1.52 secounds!!
    .The moon has a diamiter of 2,000 miles. The surface of the moon has about the same area as the continent of Africa.
    .We always see the same side of the moon and it is not a light source.
    .The only month that can occur without a moon in February.
    .The moon is the earths only natural saillite.
    I hope you find these useful!! I wonder if anyone else can help Mr Phillips???

    Did you know?……….

    That on earth the multi layer space suit had a mass of one hundred and eighty pounds and on the moon it only had a mass of thirty pounds.

    It takes over 27days for the moon to travel
    all around the Earth and back to it’s original
    starting place.:)

    The moon does not glow. The sun shines onto it and that is what make’s it look like it is shining!

  5. Olivia A says:

    The moon is NOT a light source it just reflects light from the sun so we can see it, I hope this will be a tiny bit useful !!!

    It takes 27 days,7 hours,43 minuites and 11.6 seconds for the Moon to orbit the Earth!

    The moon is much smaller than the earth.

  8. Lauren P says:

    On the 20th July 1969 two American astronauts were the first people to set foot on the moon.They were called Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.

    The moon moves around the Earth once every month.It’s path is called an orbit.

    The moon is covered with dents called craters.These were made when meteoroids crashed into the moon. Meteoroids are large lumps of rock and metal.
