The next full moon is on January 25.
Invite students to view the full moon that night and think about how far away it might be. Then 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!
