This lesson provides a way for students to determine the relationship between the distance from a light source and its brightness. Once students discover the relationship, they can begin to understand how astronomers use this knowledge to determine... (View More)

This is a lesson about the electromagnetic spectrum. Learners begin by arranging a set of picture cards; in the discussion afterwards, this activity is related to the electromagnetic spectrum as an arrangement of energy waves. Next, using a... (View More)

This is an activity about the size of the Sun. Learners will construct a pinhole camera and, using the projected image of the Sun, calculate its diameter. After calculating the diameter of the Sun, learners will create a classroom sized scale model... (View More)

This is an activity about resonance and where it is found in related to astronomy. Learners will construct two differently sized rings out of file folder paper and tape them to a piece of cardboard. Next, they will shake the cardboard from side to... (View More)

This is a series of three activities about light and spectra. First, learners will construct their own spectroscope, observe common light sources, record the observed spectra, and compare their findings. Next, learners will use their spectroscopes... (View More)

This is an activity about sampling specifically in astronomy. Learners will make a sampling window in order to estimate the number of stars in the sky visible to the unaided eye. After, they will discuss how to estimate the effect of different... (View More)

This activity is about astronomical themes. Learners will use a U.S. Atlas or the internet to search for names of cities or natural features named after astronomical objects. Their lists may be used to stimulate discussion or to begin creative... (View More)

This is a lesson about sampling and estimation. Learners will make an object called a sampling window through which they will first count the number of stars on a printed page and estimate the total number of stars on the page, then count and... (View More)

This is an activity about distance and scale. Learners will make a kinesthetic 3-D model to represent the distances of stars in the constellations Ursa Major and Orion. This is Actividad 6.5 as part of El Universo a Sus Pies, a Spanish-language... (View More)

This is an activity about telling time. Learners will construct a northern-hemisphere star clock and will set their star clocks based on the position of the Big Dipper in the sky. Then, they will use their star clocks to predict where the Big Dipper... (View More)
