Last week we celebrated the 40th anniversary on man landing on the moon.

To commemorate this historic event, several organisations have created interactive activities for us to experience, learn from and mostly enjoy.

Behind the News or BTN is a terrific TV program for children created by the ABC. Last week they ran a wonderful story about the Moon Landing.

An archive of the story can be found at URL: http://www.abc.net.au/news/btn/story/s2627599.htm

Along with their story, in the Extra Info section you can find links to several other stories and interactives.

ABC Science also has their own web page you can find at http://www.abc.net.au/science/moon/

It has photos, video, quizzes and and you can listen to the ABC’s original coverage of the moon landing!

We Choose the Moon is a brilliant interactive recreation of the Apollo 11 mission.

It was created by the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

You can find them at URL: http://wechoosethemoon.org/

or check out Google Moon at URL: http://www.google.com/moon/ for tours of the Lunar Landing sites, 3D models and 360 degree photo panoramas.

Awesome!!! 🙂
