5 Motion of the Moon
The Motion of the Moon Science Object provides a great resource for educators. High school students studying the subject can read the object as a supplement to learning or research. Middle and elementary school teachers can use the experiments suggested as lab activities or visuals. The information given will help the reader better understand the moon’s movements, orbit, different eclipses, moon shapes, and phases.

3 The Universe
I admit that astronomy has never been my strongest area of science, therefore I felt a little overwhelmed in completing the SciPack on “Universe: The Origin and Evolution of the Universe”. I found it difficult learning different facts about the universe without more meaningful interactive support. For example, I wanted to see more of how the big bang theory looked using a video to help me more determine the plausibility. Yet, the videos from figures 3.4, 4.1, and 4.2 did not play on my computer. The interactive videos such as 3.2 and 3.3 helped me form more of a clear understanding regarding Hubble’s Law and the expansion of the universe. Yet, I felt reading or having someone read to me facts about the universe kept me less engaged in completing the SciPack because I am a visual learner.

4 Solar System
The SciPack on the Solar System was very informative. The specific details provided in comparing and contrasting the different planets would be a great resource to use in instruction or professional development of teachers. For example, Figure 3.1 gives an excellent visual of each planet’s location and characteristics. I also believe the misconceptions listed are helpful for planning lessons on the solar system.
