Learning Targets and Learning Criteria | ||

- Explain that models can be three-dimensional, two-dimensional, a mental model (a picture in your mind), or a computer model.
- Use a model to demonstrate the difference between Earth’s rotation and Earth’s revolution.
- Explain that Earth rotates once on its axis in approximately a 24-hour period (day and night).
- Explain that Earth revolves (orbits) around the sun once in a year (approximately 365 days).
- Discuss the types of investigations in which a microscope or hand lens might be used.
- Research the histories of the microscope and telescope reporting on what is learned.
- Identify the telescope and satellite as tools that have allowed scientists to see very large things, such as the Earth, the solar system, and parts of the universe
**.**
- Review that the sun is the closest star to Earth.
- Demonstrate that the star patterns (constellations) in the sky do not move although they appear to shift across the sky nightly due to Earth’s rotation.
- Discuss how different star patterns are high in the night sky in some seasons but dip below the horizon in other seasons (e.g., use models/ simulations of winter and summer skyline).
- Explain that Earth moves, but the sun and other stars remain fixed in the sky (do not move).
- Explain that Earth’s rotation on its axis causes the sun/stars to appear as though they are moving across the sky.
