Product Description
(44 pages) This activity shows daytime and nighttime skies so that students can determine the daily position (longitude & latitude) of a boat during its 39-day voyage across the Atlantic and back. This is an interesting and fun activity for astronomy students! It is the same activity as our Celestial Navigation 2 & 3, except that boat locations are different. Back in the day (before GPS), sailors navigated the seas by observing the sky. With this activity, students can do the same! If you know the altitude of the North Star, then you know your northern latitude. If you know when the Sun is at the top of its daily arc, then you've determined local noon, and local noon can be compared with GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) to determine longitude. You will love this activity! (Important terms: North Star, Polaris, rotation, meridians, parallels, Prime Meridian, GMT, Greenwich Mean Time, Altitude, Little Dipper, Latitude, Longitude, Local Noon, Arc, Sun)
