Mission 3: Stayin' Alive (Part 1)

Mission 3: We have learned about the Moon's environment and about the parts of plants. In this mission we will begin to learn what it takes to keep plants alive. Plants need seven important things in order to grow, and the next two missions are about these seven things. We will compare the Moon environment to the Earth environment. Does the Moon have all of the same conditions as Earth? If not, what do we need to think about to make sure the plants can grow on the Moon?
