Today we revisited the astronomy myths from the beginning of the unit. Students reached into a box and pulled out one of the myths randomly. Their task was to write a letter back to the author of that myth. “Dear John Abbot,” one letter read, “I was impressed by how you were able to predict the tides way back then. But I want to tell you why the tides happen. It’s not because the Earth is inhaling and exhaling sea water. The real reason tides occur is because…” Students completed as many letters as possible in the 45 minute class period. This was a good chance to review all of the science that we learned in our astronomy unit, with a little dash of imagination and creativity. Tomorrow, we will begin our capstone project.
