Between 1969 and 1972, 12 astronauts from six Apollo missions landed on and explored the nearside (Earth-facing side) of the moon. The six landing sites were chosen to explore different geologic terrains. Students will use longitude and latitude coordinates to locate these landing sites on a moon globe.
