This is an activity about magnetic fields. Learners will use various magnets, magnetic film, and a compass to see and illustrate what magnetic fields look like. This is the fourth activity as part of the iMAGiNETICspace: Where Imagination,... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is a lesson about detecting atmospheres of planets. Learners will explore stellar occultation events (by interpreting light curves) to determine if an imaginary dwarf planet “Snorkzat” has an atmosphere. The activity is part of Project... (View More)

This lesson applies the science and math of the rotation of a sphere to water and wind movements on Earth. Students are introduced to convection, the Trade Winds and the Coriolis Force. Using an online visualizer, students generate trajectories and... (View More)

Navigational tools and methods of early voyagers provide the background and contrast to the satellite images and models used today. Students complete mapping activities based on historical data from Columbus and Blith. Students will also use a... (View More)

This is an activity about the moons of Jupiter. Learners will study the orbital motions of Jupiter's Galilean satellites. The relationship between distance, gravity, and orbital period will be explored. This activity is part of "Ways of Seeing," an... (View More)

This is an activity about the polar caps on Mars. Learners will study the changing appearance of Mars' polar caps and investigate the relationship between the tilt of a planet's rotational axis (axial tilt) and the occurrence of seasons. This... (View More)

This is an activity about the rate of rotation. Learners will study the rotation of Jupiter and learn hw scientists determine the length of a day on a gas giant planet This activity is part of "Ways of Seeing," an interactive, educational CD-ROM... (View More)

This is an activity about lunar and terrestrial stratigraphy. Learners will study the patterns of lava flow by creating eruptions using soda-vinegar solutions and modeling with home-made playdough (stove-top and no-cook recipes are included). This... (View More)

This is an activity about spectroscopy. Learners make their own spectroscope and measure the wavelengths of spectral lines. Then, they will record the colors, patterns, and wavelengths of the lines from various light sources. This activity requires... (View More)

This is an activity about astrology and the scientific reasons behind the zodiac cycle. Learners will form a model by sitting in a circle, holding constellation signs, and placing a light source representing the Sun in the middle. Then, using the... (View More)
