6-8: Moon Folklore

Before science could explain such phenomena, people would come up with stories about gods and nature to explain them.

 

Use your imagination to write your own story about the cause and weird effects the moon can have.  Write a 2-3 paragraph story with yourself as the protagonist experiencing weird things during a Super Moon.

 

Make sure to identify the setting (time and place) in which your story takes place.  At least one detail of your story should link to one of the scientific realities explained in the video.
