Moon Lander is a script for
pupils studying the Solar System.
Written by teachers at Paddock Wood
Primary School, Tonbridge, it provides
an introduction for pupils aged 9-12
to gravity, space travel and the moon.
- Use the play as a stimulus for
pupils to write their own scripts
exploring other bodies in the Solar System.
- Put on a production in assembly
time, perhaps to launch National
Science Week in your school. You
could use the play as part of a
Science Fair with a space theme
- invite a local astronomer into
school, use the assembly speech
provided on this CD ROM, exhibit
pupil work on the Solar System,
hold a water rocket competition
(help on rocket production is given
in the Liftoff! resource),
visit a science centre, bring a
mobile planetarium into school etc.
More information on running science
fairs is given in the Events section
of this CD ROM.
