|Summary:||"In this 1-hour activity, children, ages 8 to 13, portray our Moon's remarkable beginnings through a giant impact. Children color images of the latest scientific data depicting the Moon's formation to create their own comic strips of our Moon's birth. The children use different-colored balls of Play-Doh® to model the impact between Earth and a small planet 4.5 billion years ago. """"Debris"""" from both """"planets"""" is rolled into a small ball to model how our Moon formed through the process of accretion of smaller particles."|
