1st GradeSpace Systems: Patterns and Cycles
In this demonstration, students are lead by Mindy as she explains what a constellation is, how to form one, and the names and stories behind some of the better known constellations in the night sky. Flash and Java required, headphones recommended.
This simulation will let you launch a spacecraft from Earth to Mars. We’ll handle the amount and direction of the thrust: all you have to do is decide when to launch by watching the positions of Earth and Mars as they orbit the sun. Easy!
Everyone knows that day is the time between sunrise and sunset, when it’s light, and night is the rest of the time, when it’s dark. But what makes the Sun rise and set? You can take a giant step into space and observe the Sun/Earth/Moon system in action. Or you can look at just the Earth/Moon system if you like. You control how you view the action.
Next Generation Science Standards is a multi-state effort to create new education standards that are “rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.”
Our team from Temple University has developed this resource for all K-12 students and teachers of science. These vetted learning tools align to the NGSS. Find one we should include? Just fill out the form.
