Student Internet investigation that further explores Planet Earth and the Moon. The lab utilizes websites from various sources to investigate Earth and Moon processes. The latest images, interactive animations, games and data are presented as well for this topic. (I use this computer lab activity for my astronomy class as part of the unit III review but it can also be used at an 8th grade level Earth/Space activity.)
