The Moon for Kids – Learning the Moon | Educational Video for Children


Hello friends, welcome to a new video from
Happy Learning. Today we are going to learn about… the Moon. The Moon is the only satellite that rotates
around our planet and it takes 28 days to completely go around the Earth. But, do we
now what a satellite is? A natural satellite is any kind of celestial body that rotates,
or actually, orbits around a planet. The Moon is never still, it moves and in two
ways. It has a movement of rotation, and a movement
of translation, that is to say, it rotates around the Earth.
The duration of the movement of rotation and translation is 28 days. Because it takes the
same amount to rotate on its own axis and to completely go around the Earth, the Moon
always shows us the same face. When we observe the Moon along a period of
time it appears to change shape. These changes in appearance are called lunar phases and
they repeat every 28 days. There are four: full Moon, first quarter, new Moon and last
quarter. The Moon phases are produced by two reasons: the movement of the Moon around the
Earth and because the Moon reflects light form the sun as a mirror. New Moon
In this phase the Moon is passing between the Earth and the Sun. The illuminated face
of the Moon is facing the opposite direction to Earth. The dark side ends up facing the
Earth, and this is why we cannot see the Moon. First Quarter
You can see it approximately one week after the new Moon. One half of the illuminated
side faces the Earth. It is called the first quarter because, from the new Moon phase,
the zone illuminated by the sun grows every time. Full Moon
Approximately a week after the first quarter, we can see the whole Moon illuminated. The
Earth is between the Moon and the sun and we can see it fully. Last Quarter
The Moon presents its other half face illuminated. The name of the last quarter comes from the
fact that the illuminated side becomes smaller and smaller each time A very easy trick to now whether the Moon
is in its first or last quarter is the following. If the Moon has the shape of a C, it is in
its last quarter and if it has the shape of a D, it is in its first quarter. So now you know, the Moon has 4 phases:
New Moon, first quarter, full Moon and last quarter. Know we are going to learn a few facts about
the Moon Do you know the distance between the Moon
and the Earth? Although it looks as though it is not very far away, the Moon is about
385,000 kilometers from the Earth. Another very interesting fact is that a rocket
takes three days to get to the Moon. Its incredible, isn’t it? The first astronaut that stepped on the Moon
was Neil Armstrong and this very important accomplishment occurred in the year 1969 aboard
the Apollo 11 rocket. The Moon is 4 times smaller than the Earth,
but it is very important for the sustainability of life in our planet. The Moon generates
tides; Do you now what that is? A tide is the rise and fall of the sea level. They occur
every 6 hours approximately. Well now you know a little bit more about
the Moon, very interesting, right? Bye friends and don’t forget to subscribe

  1. Hey Kids, Look at the New Moon in the video. The Moon is between the Sun and The earth. There should be a Shadow of the Moon on the earth each month during a New Moon – but there is NOT. We don't see this On earth. Kids, ask your Teacher, if the model shown is correct, why don't we see the shadow of the Moon on the earth during a New Moon? Try this yourself at home with a flashlight and balls to represent the Earth Sun and Moon. You will see, the Moon always cast a shadow on the Earth If this model is correct. The model above must Not be correct because we see No shadow on the earth from the Moon during a New Moon. Challenge your teachers to tell you the truth.

  2. Do you also teach Kids that these things in the video are NOT FACTS. The truth is these above are Only unproven theories. There are many more ways to look at the Earth Sun, Moon, and planets that you are not telling the kids about. Be fair to the children and teach them to question everything and to find out the truth for themselves.

  3. It actually revolves around our planet and it travels on a path called an orbit. It does not orbit the earth. It does not rotate. There are a lot of vocabulary mishaps in this video.

  5. well I'm ten and I'm doing my own little project and it's about my passion space this help a little but I'm glad I wached it

  6. At 2:25 how can the Earth be between the moon and the sun, but the moon is reflecting the light of the sun? The Earth would be in the way.

  7. Do you really teach this to children you realize that at 0:14 the "earth turns to the left" to explain that the moon does what? It deletes the channel and is ashamed

  8. I think it is a bit wrong and you didn't introduce the crescent moon,so I don't think this video is good and I am ten…..😐

  10. One thing about the moon is that it looks closer than it actually is. Please consider the following info concerning just how far away the moon is!

  11. Friends hello! You have a cool video! Come to us, rate us, it will be very useful to us. (Mutual subscription and like from us)!

  12. How can the moon rotate on its axis and only ever show one side? Doesn't make any sense. The moon could only ever show one side at all times if it was locked in its orbit around Earth. Make a model and try it

  13. I have seen both the videos this also and the one which was totally of eclipse but I am not able to understand
