Science concepts. The student develops a familiarity with the sky. The student is expected to: (A) observe and record the apparent movement of the Sun and Moon during the day; (B) observe and record the apparent movement of the Moon, planets, and stars in the nighttime sky; and (C) recognize and identify constellations such as Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Orion, Cassiopeia, and constellations of the zodiac. Modeling the Night Sky activity (.pdf) Equatorial Sundial activity (.pdf)Observing the Moon activity (.pdf) Navigating the Night Sky (activity components) student guide (.pdf) teacher guide (.pdf) Kepler starwheel to use in the activity Guide to Free Desktop Planetarium Software from the Communicating Astronomy with the Public Journal (.pdf)Some examples of software are: Stellarium free, cross-platform software Nightshade free, cross-platform software based on Stellarium with more education features Starry Night various levels and prices available World Wide Telescope free (download for PC, web-based for Mac) Learning to use WWT in classrooms Using WWT in classrooms 6. Science concepts. The student knows our place in space. The student is expected to: (A) compare and contrast the scale, size, and distance of the Sun, Earth, and Moon system through the use of data and modeling; (B) compare and contrast the scale, size, and distance of objects in the solar system such as the Sun and planets through the use of data and modeling; (C) examine the scale, size, and distance of the stars, Milky Way, and other galaxies through the use of data and modeling; (D) relate apparent versus absolute magnitude to the distances of celestial objects; and (E) demonstrate the use of units of measurement in astronomy, including Astronomical Units and light years. Scale Distances in our Solar System activity (.pdf) Sizes in our Solar System activity (.pdf) Scale models of Earth and moon activity (.pdf) Stars and Galaxies activity (.pdf) Speed of Light activity from Jody Harkrider (.pdf file)7. (7) Science concepts. The student knows the role of the Moon in the Sun, Earth, and Moon system. The student is expected to: (A) observe and record data about lunar phases and use that information to model the Sun, Earth, and Moon system; (B) illustrate the cause of lunar phases by showing positions of the Moon relative to Earth and the Sun for each phase, including new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent; (C) identify and differentiate the causes of lunar and solar eclipses, including differentiating between lunar phases and eclipses; and (D) identify the effects of the Moon on tides. Observing the Moon activity (.pdf)Simulated Phases of the Moon If you can't go outside and get your own data, use this (.ppt) file from the excellent GEMS guide Earth, Moon and Stars. Students should draw the shape ona piece of paper, measure the angle of separation from the image of the sun to the image of the moon from their position in the room, and record their data. Real observations are better (since students have ownershipof their data, but this is a substitute. Always do observations prior to modeling the phases with balls and lights. The Moon resource list from Astronomical Society of the Pacific Moon (.ppt file)8. Science concepts. The student knows the reasons for the seasons. The student is expected to: (A) recognize that seasons are caused by the tilt of Earth's axis; (B) explain how latitudinal position affects the length of day and night throughout the year; (C) recognize that the angle of incidence of sunlight determines the concentration of solar energy received on Earth at a particular location; and (D) examine the relationship of the seasons to equinoxes, solstices, the tropics, and the equator.
