Summary:Children, ages 8–13, embark on an exploration of Earth's and the Moon's shared history in this 30 –minute introductory activity for the Explore! Marvel Moon module. They work in groups to determine the order of geologic events  — such as the formation of the Moon and when the bright crater of Tycho formed — and arrange images depicting those events in the correct order. The children are introduced to NASA lunar scientists, who are currently investigating the Moon's history, through comic-book style visualizations of their real-life work. Finally, the children share their own histories by drawing, comic-book style, a past connection with the Moon in their own lives.
