Hey Mars! Put a Ring on it! Conversation Starters

1. Whose Moon is whose?! Try to guess which moon of these moons- — Hyperion, Triton, Europa, Deimos, Luna, Miranda– goes with which planet (Remember: Mercury and Venus have no moons). Then, check your answers here:

2. Some planets have dozens of moons! But our Earth only has one. Make up some extra moons for Earth by creating moon sounding names.

3. Draw a picture of how the night sky would look on Earth with these extra moons … The moons will appear bigger if they are close to the planet like Mars’ moon Phobos or smaller if they are farther away like the Moon we see every night. They could be different colors and shapes too!
