4 Moon
Earth only has one moon and eclipses of the sun and moon are dependent upon the alignment of the sun, moon, and earth. This SciPack allows teachers to engage students in a conversation that allows them to describe the motion of the moon as seen from Earth and from space and explain why the shape of the moon changes over time. Many times we talk alot about the orbit of the sun, but this SciPack is dedicated to the moon.

4 Galaxy
This SciPack was interesting because it traced the beginning of the exploration of space and the advancements that science has made especially after the invention of the telescope. We have been able to find out information about the planets because of the improvement in technology and the interest in life (or lack thereof) beyond earth.

4 Planets
The information presented in this SciPack is current and names Pluto as a dwarf planet instead of a planet. This SciPack also gives a rationale for how planets are grouped based on similar composition and structure. I like the pictures of the planets that were taken and included.
