A good source for educational material on the Moon is the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston. See http://www.lpi.usra.edu/education/resources/s_system/moon.shtml
There is also a nice collection of videos and animations related to current moon research. See http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/search/Keyword/Moon.html
