I. Read the passage carefully, then circle the correct letter A, B, C or D: (2,5ms)
Long ago a lot of beoble thought the moon was a God. Other people thought it was
just a light in the sky. And others thought it was a big ball cheese! The telescopes were
made. And men saw that the moon was really another world. They wondered what it was
like. They dreamed of going there.
On July 20,1969, that dream came true. Two america men landed on the moon. Their
names were Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin.
The first thing the men found was that the moon is covered with dust. The dust is so
thick that the men left foot prints where they walked. Those were the first marks a living
thing had ever made on the moon. And they could stay there for years and years. There is
no wind or rain to wipe them off.
The two men walked on the moon for hours. They picked up rocks to bring back to
earth for study. They dug up dirt to bring back. They set up machines to find out things
people wanted to know. Then they climbed back into their moon landing craft.
Next day the landing craft roared as the two men took off the moon. They joined
Michael Collins in the spaceship that wait for them above the moon. Then they were off on

machines they had set up. And they left footprints that may last forever.
