Lunar Mountains (Demo Scenario)

Lunar Mountains (Demo Scenario)
Original hosted in "ODS", contributed by Christopher Leigh on 02/12/2014

The Lunar Mountains activity is a Keystage 3/4 workshop to estimate the height of mountains and crater walls on the Moon. After assembling a mosaic of a quarter-phase Moon, students are asked to measure the length of shadows being cast by a number of vertical features on the lunar surface, and will then use some algebra to estimate their respective heights.
