Create and make a lunar landscape where an explorer might have been
A landscape is everything that you see when you look across a piece of land. A lunar landscape is the landscape that is related to the moon and
this activity involves creating your own.
We know that lunar landscapes have craters, hills, mountains, and rivers. If you are going to make a lunar landscape using your imagination,
then you get put whatever you like on your surface!
You can create your lunar landscape in many ways. It can be a drawing, painting, a collage, or a 3D model. The choice is yours, but you will
need to think about the materials that you have available before you start.
• Researching what the surface of the moon looks like using the internet or books
• Drawing a design for your lunar landscape, imagining what an explorer might have seen
• Deciding what form your lunar landscape will have
Making the lunar landscape:
• If you are going to draw or paint the landscape, then research the types of colours that you would see as an explorer. Charcoal (if you
have it) might be a good material to use to create light and shade
• You might want to use card or silver foil if you are going to make a collage. Bubble wrap, if you have some, might be useful to form the
base of the landscape
• The websites www.redtedart.com or https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/owto/guide/how-make-paper-mache have some useful ideas using
papier-mâché, which can be used to make mountains and boulders if you want to make a 3D model. You will need an adult to help with
this as it uses hot water
You could also:
• Imagine what an explorer would be like and draw or make them to add to your landscape
• Write an imaginary story about your lunar landscape. Who else could live there? Could you create unusual animals or birds that live on
Creating your lunar landscape will help you to:
• Use your imagination
• Find out facts about the moon landscape
• Aid your DT and art skills
Find out about the planets - create a model or a picture
Get started by:
• Researching the planets using the internet or books. This will help you decide if you want to focus on one planet or the whole of the solar
system. You might want to make notes of your findings
• Asking someone from your family to go outside with you when it is dark and see if you can identify some of the constellations
• Deciding whether you are going to draw or paint a picture or create a 3D model
A 2D planet
• You can use card or paper to create your image. Draw around a small plate and then draw an outline of your planet or planets and then fill
in with colour. Take care to copy the colours from the information that you have researched
• Use paints or coloured pencils to represent what you might see on the planet. You will have researched what the different planets have
already e.g. Earth has land and sea
A 3D planet
• A 3D model will take you a bit longer to create and you will need to think about what materials you can find to help you make it. There are
plenty of different ideas on the internet to help you
• The ideal objects to make the planets are Styrofoam balls, but these may not be available. You could use tennis balls, small rubber balls
or plasticine rolled into a circle. Always ask permission before you use these!
• To make your planet seem realistic you need to paint it, copying the colours accurately
Creating your planets will help you to:
• Find out more about the solar system
• Improve your DT and art skills
