Product Description
In this lab, students will be able to describe how meteoroids impact the moon's surface over time. Students will use a marble at 3 different heights to investigate how speed can impact a crater's diameter.

Included in this document is a PowerPoint that explains the lab and provides a video for background knowledge. The PowerPoint instructs students how to set up their science notebook for the lab.

I have also included a slide with visuals that I place at lab tables to assist students during the lab.

This is a great way to wrap up your Sun-Earth-Moon Systems unit and students will love this lab!

For this lab, you will need:
You will need:
1 tray or container for each group, usually a baking dish or similar tray so you can have at least 3 inches of flour along the bottom
2 to 3 bags of flour, depending on how many groups you have
1 large container of cocoa powder
A spoon or sifter to disperse the cocoa powder
One marble or golf ball per group
Meter stick
Measuring tape
Student notebook
Pencils
Newspapers or torn open trash bags that can cover tables or the floor to minimize clean-up time

Before students begin the lab, prep trays with 3 inches of flour and a light layer of cocoa powder at the top. Set aside.
