On July 20, 1969 humans landed on the moon for the first time. As the culminating assignment in a 19-lesson unit on narrative writing, class members imagine what that experience was like and craft a narrative in the voice of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, a person in Mission Control, or a watcher of the television broadcast.
- After writers have finished their narratives, hook them up with the Internet article, "11 Strange Facts You Didn't Know About the First Moon Landing"
