Lunar Topography

Lunar Topography represents an ideal way to learn about "Impact Cratering," an important phenomenon of the moon's surface. You can actually determine the age of the moon by counting the craters per unit area. In this demo the students use a map of the moon to learn about impact cratering. The activity stands well on its own or as part of a unit on the Earth's surface features.

This demo was conceived and developed by Sunil Golwala.
