Artemis ROADS Unit 2 Lesson 2: Craters

This lesson’s guiding question is, “What factors influence how the Moon’s craters form and how they appear to us on Earth?”.

Lesson Summary:

Students will start by examining the Moon’s surface and wondering about the craters they see.  Then, they will engage in hands-on activities to discover factors that affect crater formation and crater slopes.  Finally, they will use the craters they create to try and capture images that look the same as real craters on the moon using shadows and light and then document their learning from the lesson.
