It’s a full moon tonight—the Cold Moon, in fact. That’s definitely true here in Minnesota! Brrr!
Invite students to look at the full moon tonight and think about how far away it might be. Then tomorrow, gather a basketball, a tennis ball, and a tape measure. Download the teaching guide for If You Were the Moon here and explore the How Far Away Is the Moon? activity on pages 19-20. Super fun!
