Go to the Moon with ScienceWiz(R) Book and Online Discovery Kit. From phases, eclipses, craters, origins, tidal locking, moon dust, moon rocks, to the discovery of water-ice -- prepare for mankind's return to the Moon with this 52 pages, fully illustrated book. The giant lava tubes discovered just below the surface may prove to where humans form shielded colonies -- perhaps in your lifetime.

The Online Discovery version includes a flip-book that guides children through each project visually and includes embedded animations, videos, games, and interactive simulations. It integrates the best of online interactive play with hands-on projects.


PROJECTS INCLUDE:

  • Modeling the phases of the Moon
  • Acting out tidal locking
  • Exploring the mysteries of its far side, not visible from the Earth
  • Making your own craters and learning what they teach us about the Moon's history
  • Making a model of the layers of the Moon with soft clay
    Let it harden and cut it open to see the inside structures from core to mantle
