FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON

 

 

First astronauts on the MOON

 

 

First footprint on the Moon

 

 

On day in July, Apollo 11 launched towards the Moon. It had three astronauts on it. They were Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins. A few days later, Apollo 11 began to orbit around the Moon. Then Armstrong and Aldrin took de Lunar Module (called ‘the Eagle’) to the Moon. 
So, on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the Moon. It was the first human footprint on the Moon. 
The spaceship Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969. The three astronauts were 
safe at home.

Earth, Moon and Sun System movements

How do the Sun, the Earth and the Moon move?

The Earth and everything in our SOLAR SYSTEM is constantly moving.

Our SOLAR SYSTEM includes the SUN, nine PLANETS and their MOONS, COMETS and ASTEROIDS. These objects are sometimes called CELESTIAL BODIES.

 

  • At the centre of these SOLAR SYSTEM is the SUN. It takes the sun 25 days to spin or rotate completey around of this system. 
  • The Earth takes 24 hours to rotate ITSELF. That causes DAY and NIGHT.  
  • At the same time, the EARTH is moving around the SUN. That path around the Sun is called ORBIT. It takes the Earth one year (365 1/4 days) to completely orbit the Sun. 
  • In addition, meanwhile, the Moon orbits the Earth. The Moon’s orbit lasts 27-29  1/2 days.

Do you like travelling? We really love travelling. Are you going somewhere special this summer? Do you have any plans for the summer?Where are you going this summer? Or…Where would you like to travel?? Here you can check some words  related to the amazing world of  TRAVELLING.

 

If you travel by plane it can be a good idea to learn some vocabulary from the AIRPORT (check-in, luggage, aisle or window seat, boarding gate, delay, etc.).


Have you ever been to Alicante’s airport? It’s new and really big!
