Probably Luna 2 and it's upper stage rocket. Remember, the Russians were first on the moon in 1959. Luna 2 crashed into it at full pelt, but it was first. It's upper stage flew alongside it. Luna 2 discovered important scientific facts about the moon. See the Wikipedia link below for more details.

How does a rocker travel from earth to the moon?

The rocket fires it's engine and pushes out enough energy to escape earth orbit and send it to the moon, where the moon's gravity grabs it and brings the rocket into orbit or into the surface of the moon. It's takes a lot of energy to send a rocket to the moon. A Saturn V moon rocket was needed during the Apollo space mission. If you have ever stood next to a Saturn V moon rocket at a museum, you will see it takes a lot of energy to send an object to the moon.

What is the largest Rocket ever built that took astraunts to the moon?

The largest Rocket ever built is called the Saturn V rocket and was used to send man to the moon from 1969 to 1972. Built by German engineer Whener Von Braun, the rocket measures 110,6 meters tall. Incomparison to the space shuttle, the shuttle with its external tank and solid rocket boosters attached measure only 56 meters tall. However NASA does have plans to create a new rocket, the Ares V which may be a couple of meters taller then the Saturn V rocket. The rocket is still in the conceptual stage, but may be used as a heavy weight launch vehicle in the near future.
