This paper model shows the orbit of Comet ISON (late 2013) with respect to the innermost planets of the solar system. After reading background information about comets - how they form and where they come from - students cut out and tape together the... (View More)

This is an activity about observing and mapping sunspots by direct solar observation. Learners will use a small telescope, binoculars, or a Sunspotter to create a projected image of the Sun and trace the position of any observed sunspots on a piece... (View More)

This is an activity about solar rotation and sunspot motion. Learners will use a sphere or ball to model the Sun and compare the observed lateral motion of sunspots to their line-of-sight motion. This is Activity 1 of the Space Weather Forecast... (View More)

This is a kinesthetic activity about the rotation of the Moon. Learners act out the rotation and revolution motions of Moon around the Earth to illustrate that the Moon rotates once in the same amount of time as it orbits the Earth once, called... (View More)

This is an activity about solar and lunar eclipses. Learners will use Styrofoam balls and a single light source to model and observe how both types of eclipses occur. This is Activity A-4 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of... (View More)

This is an activity about size and scale. Learners will construct accurate size models of the Earth and Moon out of clay and use them to model the Earth-Moon distance. This is Actividad 4.1 as part of El Universo a Sus Pies, a Spanish-language... (View More)

This is an activity about comets. Depending on the grade level of learners, either the instructor or the learners will construct a model comet using dry ice, ammonia, dirt, corn syrup, and water. This is Actividad 5.3 as part of El Universo a Sus... (View More)

This is an activity about Moon phases. Learners will use a Styrofoam ball to simulate the Moon, which will be lit by a single light source in the classroom. Then, they will observe how different portions of the Moon ball are illuminated as they hold... (View More)

This is an activity about scale. Learners will use toilet paper squares as a standard measuring unit for a Solar System model and will determine the scaled distance between each planet using the data provided. This is Activity D-2 of Universe at... (View More)

This is an activity about astrobiology. Learners will research one planet within our Solar System and create an alien based on the temperature, gravity, terrain, radiation exposure, composition, and atmosphere of that planet. Then, each person will... (View More)
