Exploring daily shadow changes
Earth, Moon, & Sun DIY circuit
Where is Gravity? - I need to think of a different activity
What is a planet, how many can you name?
What objects are found within a solar system, what keeps it together?
Look up in the sky, what is moving, you (the Earth) or the sky above?
At the conclusion of this program, students should be able to:
Recognize that the cycle of the Earth and Moon creates patterns and seasons
Understand that the sun is a star and that a star's brightness is relative to its distance
During this program students will:
Recognize and describe patterns and cycles
Communicate the role gravity plays on objects on Earth and within our solar system
Create a circuit that displays the relationship between the Sun, Earth and Moon
MS-ESS1-2: Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system
MS-ESS1-1: Develop and use a model of the Earth, Sun, Moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases
5-PS2-1: Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down
5-ESS1-2: Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
