 Apollo Landing Sites -- Grades 4-12
In this activity, students learn about the locations and geology of the six Apollo landing sites.
 Clay Lava Flows -- Grades 4-12
In this activity, students will use clay to simulate surface lava flows.
 Did you know astronauts study sand in space? -- Grades 3-5
Watching the movement of sand in space helps scientists understand how soil moves on Earth during an earthquake.
 Differentiation -- Grades 4-12
In this activity, students will use common household objects to discover how minerals separate from each other in a magma ocean.
