Product Description

On this assignment, students are directed to make observations of the day and night sky over a few days - to see if they can feel the Earth moving (either spinning or through space), and observe how the sun, moon, and stars move throughout the sky. They then return to make a claim about their observations that answers the question "how do things move throughout the universe?". Students are also asked to draw a model of their universe that they will then have to share with a group.

The idea behind this assignment is to give students a starting point as we begin to study both the Earth and the universe throughout the year. You can come back to these frameworks and have students adjust them as they learn new things about how the universe works, just like the astronomers of the past did.

This assignment will take 2-3 days in class, plus outside observations. Files are in .docx format and include a generic CER rubric. There is no answer key as answers will vary.
