Hi!  It’s Friday, March 4, 2011 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
We Choose the Moon

Age Range: 9 and up (approximately, with parental guidance)

At this website you can take a virtual ride with the famous Apollo 11 astronauts on man’s first journey to the moon! This carefully crafted, highly detailed, multi-media animation brings you from Stage 1 at the launch pad to Stage 11 where the astronauts make their way back to earth and land in the ocean. 

When you get to the website the animation begins with a brief introduction and an explanation of what you are about to experience. All stages of the mission are historically accurate. Each one comes with explorative views that you can click on to learn more, including facts and photo galleries of the actual events of that very day.

As each stage progresses, you hear live recordings of NASA engineers talking to the astronauts and the astronauts’ replies. Hearing the actual audio footage ads an electrifying mood to the overall experience. 

Watch as the rocket takes off and separates into sections, as empty fuel pods are ejected in flight. See the moon landing in action and hear the astronauts utter the famous words “The Eagle has landed”.

Gather the family around the computer to watch this amazing interactive now!
