Footprints on the Moon....

I found Footprints on the Moon by Alexandra Siy as a recommendation in Simply Charlotte Mason's 106 Days of Creation Studies.  The book chronicles the history of moon exploration.  Initially, I was totally in awe of this book.  The photographs are fabulous!   Many are from NASA.  However, approx. four pages from the end, the author speculates the age of the moon and how it was formed.  Her theory is evolutionary and contrary to my worldview.  I was somewhat surprised by this information given SCM's recommendation in a "creation study" science course.  Either way, the photos are spectacular and worth taking a look.  Just be cautioned regarding the text if you are from the "young earth" camp.

While learning about the moon, the kids enjoyed Lesson 126 of the Earth Science study at Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool.  After reading and researching, they drew and labeled the moon phases in their notebooks.
