Artemis ROADS II Unit 1 Lesson 4: Comparing the Earth and the Moon

This lesson’s guiding question is, “How do the Earth and the Moon compare?“.

Lesson Summary:

Students will begin by activating prior knowledge of Earth’s four major spheres or systems (atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere), then closely examine examples of interactions between these systems. Then, students will apply these ideas to the Moon and compare Earth’s four systems to the Moon’s spheres.
