It's July 20, 1969 and millions of Americans are glued to their television watching Neil Armstrong take that first historic step on the surface of the moon. This multimedia NASA site recreates that Apollo 11 mission, from its launch to its splashdown. Students can view vintage photographs, listen to the mission's audio recording, browse news articles, and tour the video gallery.

In the Classroom

Use the video clips over the interactive whiteboard to supplement the text in discussing the Apollo missions. The clip of the first landing would be a great way to introduce the topic, putting all students at the same level of understanding before beginning a lecture or class discussion. Great resource for a US history classroom!

Look to this site for any questions you may have about everything from blue moons, to quasars, to leap years. Find out the exact dates when spring, summer, fall, and winter arrive, and discover if there really is a connection between equinoxes and eggs. The clear and detailed discussions of astronomical events provide an outstanding on-line reference or refresher for teachers and high school students, but the information is a bit technical and lofty for independent use by younger students.
