This educator's guide with activities promotes problem solving, communication skills and teamwork. Topics include lunar geology and regolith, distance to the moon, Apollo landing sites, and life support systems. Some of the activities involve the Lunar Sample Disk, a set of samples of lunar rocks and regolith embedded in a 15-cm diameter plastic disk. Disks are sent via registered mail to educators for one- to two-week loan periods. The package also includes the book 'Exploring the Moon', an annotated slide set of lunar images, and a collection of color photographs and descriptions of the six samples. The activities are divided into three units: Pre-Apollo, Learning from Apollo, and the Future. These correspond roughly to exercises that can be done before the Lunar Sample Disk arrives (Pre-Apollo), while it is there (Learning from Apollo), and after it has been returned (The Future).
