Moon Craters

"The moonscape is strange, but it doesn't look dangerous. The dust reminds you of cake flour. You wish you could take off your suit and play in it."  - From If You Decide to Go to the Moon by Faith Mcnulty

But don't do it! The book warns if you do, the sun would burn you up! There's no atmosphere on the moon to protect you from the sun's rays, not like here on Earth.

Best you make your cake flour moonscape here. That's what we've done (in the video above), learning about how meteors leave craters on the moon. Come to think of it. we should've made a moon suit too!

Check out how we did our moon discovery here.
