Description
This riveting narrative told from the astronauts' points of view offers a unique approach to the story behind Apollo 11's successful --- though nearly disastrous --- 1969 moon landing. Readers are brought along on the ride of a lifetime, as they relive every step of the mission, including the nail-biting (and relatively unknown) crucial moments when it came close to failure. From ignition to moon walk to splashdown, the story is structured in eleven exciting episodes. And, setting this book apart, each episode is linked to the innovations and discoveries from the past four centuries that made it possible --- from Copernicus to Einstein, the sextant to Velcro. It's a new perspective on an epic journey, and the science, technology, engineering and math that set it in motion! Bestselling and award-winning author Sigmund Brouwer offers children an original look at the historic feat that captivated the world in July of 1969. The information is thoroughly researched and includes NASA-sourced photographs throughout. Highly readable and with a compelling modern graphic design, this engaging book is sure to generate interest among a broad range of readers. At the same time, it's teeming with math, engineering, science and technology lessons that give young readers the opportunity to make the connections between what they learn in school and awesome things that happened in the real world. There are strong curriculum links here, including earth and space systems, physical sciences, chemistry, math, engineering, technology and applied science, as well as history.

display_description"A riveting approach to the fascinating story behind Apollo 11's successful (but nearly disastrous) 1969 moon landing, Moon Landing, 1969 ties the preceding four centuries of science, technology, engineering and math to the Apollo 11 mission and the first steps on the moon with the art of storytelling. Structured in 11 episodes, the narrative takes us from pre-ignition to the moonwalk to splashdown. In addition, recurring "Solve the Mystery" sidebars highlight other key discoveries made in science, math, engineering and technology over the course of 400 years that helped to ensure the mission's success."--
