Spectacular Space

Students will explore the movement of stars and constellations, as well as objects in our solar system, such as moons, asteroids, comets and galaxies, all from our view on Earth. Use experiments to explore concepts such as the tilt of the Earth, changes in day length seasons, and positions of the Earth, Moon and Sun.
