Quesadillas and Moon Topography--Family Activity
Flour tortillas provide a fun (and tasty!) way to identify and name the features of the moon’s surface. Use this printable moon map http://www.space.com/spacewatch/moon_guide-1.html to try and identify famous moon surface features, or map out our historical lunar landing sites on your tortilla. Another option: use the map to inspire your own creative names for your tortilla moon topography :)
In our version, the moon really is made of cheese. Cook the tortilla, fold over with shredded cheese inside, and melt for the perfect post-snack lunar lesson!
