NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite missions will prepare for humans' return to the moon. The Field Trip to the Moon: LRO/LCROSS Edition includes the activities from the original Field Trip to the Moon guide plus activities relating to these two moon missions. The LRO/LCROSS activities allow participants to explore lunar stratigraphy (caused by lava flows), impact craters, the moon's history, spacecraft design in which students build models of the LRO out of edible or non-edible materials, and the future of lunar exploration.
