Unlike our lovely planet, the Moon does not have an atmosphere (it is so thin that it might as well not exist). The atmosphere on Earth reflects a lot of would-be heat back out into space and traps heat from escaping at night. The moon is hit with direct sunlight, with nothing to block the heat during the day, and at night, all the heat radiates out into space, having nothing to trap it there.
The temperature changes are so drastic because of the lack of an atmosphere. The temperature can drop to -153 degrees Celsius at night and reach 107 degrees Celsius during the day.
