the moon is very smaller than the earth because,if the moon was the size of earth it would be hard for living things to be on earth from the moon being in the way all the time and it would be too cold at night.

The Earth and Moon are different in lots of ways. Here are some of them: -the moon has a lot less gravity than the earth -there is no wind on the moon, so if you made a footprint in its dust it would never blow away -the landforms are very different -the moon has phases while the earth doesn't Note: Despite what many people think, the Earth DOES have craters, they are just not as big or as many as the ones on the Moon.
