Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
The moon is about 1/4 the diameter of Earth. Craters, bowl-shaped
depressions formed where meteorites have struck, mark its landscape.
Rough, mountainous highlands and flat plains are its basic surface
regions. The moon surface reflects light from the sun.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Read the first riddle clue to the class (or have individual cards made for each clue), and have them write down what they think it might be. Read the next clue and have them write down what they think it might be. Continue doing this until you have read all of the clues. Discuss their final answer.
Language Arts -
