We Choose the Moon

I used this today with my boys and it was great!  We’re studying Space Flight this week and we’ve been watching When We Left Earth (an excellent documentary series on the US Space Program).  Today was the episode where Buzz and Neil land on the moon.  We Choose the Moon is a simulation of the Apollo 11 space flight from the Earth to landing on the moon.  It’s pretty cool.  You go through the whole countdown, lift off, orbit, separation, etc.  up through landing, complete with the actual soundtrack of the astronauts and the ground crew.  It’s great for any kid who loves space and it’s free.
