Sky Paths: Studying the Movement Celestial Objects
By using these activities, K-4 students will have the concrete experiences of observing, organizing, comparing, and describing the movement of objects that they observe in the sky. Students will also learn how early cultures viewed objects in the sky and created stories to explain the objects they observed. Then, students will create their own stories to explain their own observations.

His collection of western poems, Sun and Saddle Leather, was not published until the second de
Learning Planet Sizes
In this activity, learners use the concepts of greater than, less than, and equal to, in order to classify student height, object size, and planet size. They will build scale models of the planets based on their discoveries of planet size. In the extension, advanced learners download images of the planets and use NIH Image to identify and describe their size by comparing them to one another.
