Earth, Sun and Moon
This course explored phenomena that can be explained by the position and motion
of the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun. Participants learned about topics supporting
Standards and Benchmarks related to the heating of Earth’s surface by the Sun, phases
of the Moon, and the apparent changes in the position of objects in the night sky.
This course also included some of the basic details about Earth, including the characteristics
that make it unique in our solar system, its composition, and its capacity to support
life. Participating educators received NASA resources to use with students and gained
strategies for implementing inquiry-based instruction models.
It gave me further resources and connections to broaden my own and my students understanding
of the seasons. – Stephanie Ott-Zurcher, middle school teacher, Pennsylvania
