This is an activity about size and scale. Learners will construct a 3-D model scale model of one of the MMS satellites. After, they will calculate the octagonal area of the top and bottom of the satellites, given the measurements of the satellite.... (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 the planet Mars. Learners will create cratered surface models illustrating different lengths of time. Then, they will compare their models with three different surface images of Mars, placing these images in order from... (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 is an activity about critical observation skills. Learners will receive an egg to record its features from various vantage points, illustrating their size, shape, and location. They will then try to identify and recognize the surface features... (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)

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 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 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 Activity F-7 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of... (View More)
