This exciting show begins on Earth where students discover the water cycle, learn about different types of clouds, and find out how rainbows form and where to spot one. We then change our focus to our closest neighbor in space and explore the surface features and changing phases of the Moon. Finally, students learn about the historic Apollo 11 program and are whisked to the Moon themselves to watch real footage of scientific experiments and discuss upcoming lunar missions.
