Description

"Exploring the Solar System: Hide and Seek Moon" is an engaging way for early childhood learners to experiment with some of the tools scientists use to study objects that are very, very far away, and to learn about how cultures around the world have viewed the Moon. Easy-to-use binoculars and a hidden object Moon poster let young participants discover how some tools can make distant objects appear closer and brighter, and the Moon Rope storybook shares a story of one of the ways people have made meaning out of the shapes they see on the Moon.
