A very fun and engaging activity to help your students really grasp the concept of Earth rotating as it orbits around the Sun. Students will walk away from this lesson understanding not only that the Earth rotates and revolves, but also while these actions cause problems for us as we try to plan shuttle launches, satellite launches, and more.
- Colorful cover
- Teacher's guide with several tips for differentiation for students who require additional support AND students who benefit from extension and refining (i.e. gifted students)
