Resources For Teachers
Your class may not be able
to visit the Lunar module at the Franklin Institute or those on
display at other locations, but by using these web resources it
is hoped that you can have students explore and learn about the
LM, the Apollo missions, and the Moon as you use the materials
here as "springboards" to learning.
Begin by having students read
the information included in the Grumman
Lunar Module and More Background
sections. The history of the Lunar Module, specifications, interior,
and exterior LM views, as well as information about the Lunar Rover
are included along with many web links to specific Apollo missions.
A variety of on-line
activities for students which were designed to test their
knowledge and let them learn more about Lunar Modules, the Apollo
Missions, and the Moon are available in the For Student section.
Students should be able to use these activities independently.
Off-line activities to provide more learning opportunities
are also included.
Use the lesson plan section
and printable activities sections below to help you plan class
activities, centers and lessons. An extensive list of web resources
is available in the resources
||Plans to help you develop activities around the Lunar Modules,

materials and activities.
||Worksheets and ideas to print out. Included are Crossword,
