Introduction to Planetary Science TSWBAT

1. Draw a map of the rooms of their house in their Science journal to show a representation and describe where they are

2. Take notes: Planetary Science Notes 1-8

3. Establish location in terms of frame of reference to better understand the vastness of space and describe where we live

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.9

39. Planet Earth/ Response Sheet- Where Am I?

 

Read Earth Science Text p. 614-621 Complete 39. Planet Earth/ Response Sheet- Where Am I?  Science Current Event due Tuesday

2/10

Birds Eye Views TSWBAT

1. View "The Powers of 10" to understand how the resolution of objects changes as the distance increases from 10m to beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

2. Explain location from different points of view, using specific frames of reference

3. Interpret representations of human- made and natural structures from different elevations

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.9

18. Bird's Eye Views/Shadow Evidence

Bird's Eye Views

Bird's Eye Views 2

Read Earth Science Text p. 614-621 Complete 39. Planet Earth/ Response Sheet- Where Am I?  Science Current Event due

2/11

Round/ Flat Earth TSWBAT

1. Use models and simulations to observe sailing ships on round and flat Earths as a means of comparison

2. In the science journals explain how the apparent disappearance of ships over the horizon is evidence of a round Earth

1. Read: Planetary Science Resources Book p. 47-51  Accidental Discovery of America to understand the differences between the theories of a flat Earth or round Earth

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.9

 

 

 
 

2/12

Latitude & Longitude TSWBAT

1. Take notes on latitude and longitude to understand the directions on the globe

2. Find the latitude and longitude of several locations around the world

3. Understand that 0 degrees is the starting point (Prime Meridian- Greenwich, England) & 180 degrees is the International Date Line and degrees increase as you move away from the equator and are measured every 15 degrees

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.9

40. Notes on latitude and longitude/ Viewpoints

Watch the Moon

2/13

Shadow Evidence-1 TSWBAT

1.Go over 39. Planet Earth/ Response Sheet- Where Am I? & 40. Notes on latitude and longitude/ Viewpoints

 2. Read: Planetary Science Resources Book p. 52-53  Eratosthenes: The First Person to Measure the Earth to understand how early scientists worked to prove that the Earth is round

3. Observe the length of the flag pole outside and record it's length in order to compare the distance as we get closer to the summer solstice: Shadow Length Activity

NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.9
