My Rocket

My rocket was big. I went inside the rocket and I was excited to go to space. It was time to go 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Lift off to the moon!
The engines blast off for space. I put my flag on the moon and then boosted back to earth,

The Moon

The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. The Moon is much smaller than the Earth. It is airless, waterless and lifeless. The gravity of the Moon, causes two high tides on the Earth every day.

The first person to walk on the Moon was the American astronaut, Neil Armstrong. He stepped out of his space craft, the Eagle, on 21 July 1969 and said these famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
