Get your rocket ship ready because we are headed to outer space to learn all about the moon!
The moon is the only other place in space humans have visited. On July 20, 1969, NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to stand on the surface of the moon. Several others have traveled there since, and NASA plans to go back to make even more discoveries.
Just like you, scientists and engineers use their creativity and imagination to tell stories about the future. In this activity, we will be using blocks and other toys to tell a creative story about traveling to the moon.
Materials you’ll need:
Building blocks or other toys
What questions do you have about the moon?
How will your story start?
Who is part of your story?
Will your characters need any special tools?
Will your characters discover something new?
Think about the story you want to tell. The Story Cards provided below might give you some ideas.
Use your blocks and other toys to create scenery, tools, and characters for your story.
Optional: Print and complete the Story Booklet provided in the list of materials.
Join NASA As They Explore How We’re Going To The Moon!
While Apollo placed the first steps on the Moon, Artemis opens the door for humanity to sustainably work and live on another world for the first time. Using the lunar surface as a proving ground for living on Mars, this next chapter in exploration will forever establish our presence in the stars. ✨ We are returning to the Moon – to stay – and this is how we are going!
