Although people know a lot about the moon, some things just don't add up. In this activity, students research, develop hypotheses, present arguments and debate possible solutions to one of the following four questions:
- Why does the moon have fewer moonquakes than Earth has earthquakes?
- Why are no volcanoes on the moon?
- Why does the farside of the moon have fewer maria than the nearside?
- Why does the moon have a weaker magnetic field than Earth?
