Explore the Universe
Journey through the solar system with a series of activities designed to meet the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards for planetary motion, apparent seasonality of zodiacal constellations, and using models to explain complex ideas and investigate new questions. Optional extension activities will help students use this information to calculate proportions, record observations, think critically about their discoveries, and apply this knowledge to new questions.
