This resource links to science and D&T but in a moon context. Children analyse the importance of having shelter for protection on Earth and in space. They compare the environmental conditions on Earth and on the Moon, then work together to design and build their own Moon shelter using materials comparable to the soil on the Moon, known as Moon analogues.
