OBJECTIVES:  Unit One - Astronomy       

  • Compare the size, composition and surface features of planets IOT describe how a planet’s features are affected by its distance from the Sun.
  • Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system IOT describe the patterns of Earth’s rotation and revolution in relation to the Sun and Moon.
  • Develop and use a model of the earth-sun-moon system IOT describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
  • Compare and contrast characteristics of celestial bodies found in the solar system (e.g., moons, asteroids, comets, meteors, inner and outer planets). IOT describe how they differ from earth.
  • Identify and describe instruments that are used to study the universe IOT explain how telescopes, satellites, etc. have advanced our understanding of space.
  • Develop and use a model IOT describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system.
  • Analyze and interpret data IOT determine scale properties of objects in the solar system.

 

IOT= Inquiry, Observation, and Technology
