1. Who do I travel to the moon with ?
Li Yanping , an astronomer 2. How did we travel to the moon?
3. How many times would the force of gravity change on our journey?
4.Which change would be the most powerful?
the first time
Task 2: Scanning
Main idea for each paragraph A. The things I did on the moon. B. We turned back to the earth. C. Last month, we visited the moon.
Para1 Para2 Para3 Para4
D. How the force of gravity changed when we traveled from the earth to the moon.
Task 3 Careful reading
Find out how the gravity changed for Li Yanping in different times.
1.The force of gravity would change 3 times on their journey.
The gravity changed
Leave the 1.The pull of gravity became very strong. earth In space
2. The gravity disappeared and floated weightlessly. 3. The gravity became very light.
On the moon
2.His weights changed three times too. Now write them down.
The time The weight changed Leave the Very heavy, then the weight lessened earth
He had no weight and could float around like a feather. The mass will be less, then the weight increased again
