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)

This is an activity about observation. Learners will make a 3-dimensional model of a mock planetary surface inside a box, and then place a lid on top. They will then introduce a simple probe, such as a pencil or stick, at various points through... (View More)

This is an activity about the apparent motions of Venus as seen from Earth. Learners will make a 3-D model using themselves, a light source, and a small white ball to visually understand Venus's orbital cycle and why it can sometimes can be seen in... (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 Actividad 4.2 as part of El... (View More)

This is an activity about size and scale. Learners will use common objects to create a size and distance model of the Solar System, with a peppercorn representing the size of the Earth. Using paces or steps as a form of standard measurement,... (View More)

This is an activity about craters. Learners will toss rocks of varying sizes into a bin of flour and cocoa. By varying the size and speed of the rocks, learners will determine how the impactors affect the shape and depth of the resulting crater.... (View More)

This is an activity about the Doppler effect. Learners will use long springs or ropes to examine the frequency and wavelength of various waves. Then, they will observe a demonstration of the Doppler effect for sound waves, using this understanding... (View More)

This is an activity about comet motion. Learners will cut out images of Halley's Comet, putting the images in sequential order to create a flip book demonstrating the comet's orbit around the Sun and the formation of the comet's tail near the Sun.... (View More)

This is an activity about constellations. Learners will create a simple star finder using basic materials and learn to use it to be able to identify constellations in the night sky for various dates and times. The star finder can also be used to... (View More)

This is an activity about shape. Learners will investigate that the Earth is a sphere by comparing the length of shadows from nails arranged on a flat map compared to nails arranged around a spherical globe. From the observations collected, they... (View More)
