If you include Earth’s Moon in your interpretation and environmental education or have wanted to but aren’t sure where to begin, you may want to watch this webinar. It is sponsored by Earth to Sky in partnership with the Lunar and Planetary Institute and NASA’s Lunar Science Institute.

Our partners  worked with informal educators to develop a set of materials and hands-on activities designed for use with youth ages 8-13, and their families. They use food, art, storytelling, and interactive investigations to celebrate our Moon.

The webinar will be archived on this site soon. Meantime, check out the presentation powerpoint and the many associated resources!
