Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Making Moon Craters We learned that craters are formed when rocks or meteors hit the surface of the moon. Materials: flour, dirt, sand, etc. in a plastic tub, rocks, balls, etc. of different sizes and weights, ruler, tape measure, or estimate different heights to drop each item. Observe what happens to the moon’s surface when the objects hit/land on it. ○What happened to the surface? ○What happened to the flour? ○Does it matter the weight of the object or distance that you drop the objects?
