We will briefly discuss the different Greek and Roman mythological figures that the moons are named after. Some of them are tragic figures and while I will be discussing them briefly and keeping it PG, it might be disturbing to students. Therefore, discretion is advised. Students will use external websites, namely NASA Solar System Exploration, Space Facts, and Planets for Kids, to guide their discoveries on moons. Students will be reading about moons on these sites.
