FIELD TRIP DETAILS

 

Universe In A Day

Live Lesson by the Astronomer

The astronomer will use the unique, full-dome planetarium to illustrate speci c and challenging 4th grade space science concepts including:
• Earth: axis, tilt, rotation, day and night, orbital revolution and seasonal pattern
• Moon: location, movement, phases and tidal effect on oceans

• Sun: properties, apparent path in the sky and e ects on Earth.

Science Standards: 4.E.3A.1; 4.E.3A.2.; 4.E.3B.1; 4.E.3B.2

And: “Earth, Moon & Sun” Planetarium Show

This exciting show, inspired by American Indian oral traditions, will help students learn concepts about the Earth-Moon-Sun system. Learn the basics of solar energy and why the sun rises and sets. Examine the moon’s orbit, craters, phases and eclipses. You’ll even take a look at past and future space travel to our moon... and beyond! Science Standards: 4.E.3A.1; 4.E.3A.2.; 4.E.3B.4

Then Your Group Rotates through Four Labs: Universe In A Day Labs:

Phases of the Moon
Using moon box models students will manipulate the position of the moon in its orbit around the Earth. They will use this data to describe the Moon Phase Cycle.Science Standards: 4.E.3B.1.; S.1.A.2

Seasons 
Students will utilize Sun, Earth and moon models (Orrery) to explore the relationship between seasonal changes and the tilt, revolution and angle of sunlight on the Earth. Science Standards: 4.E.3B.4; S.1.A.6

Shadows of the Sun
Students will use Earth and shadow models to explain why the Sun appears to move across the sky throughout the day. Science Standards: 4.E.3B.3; S.1.A.6

Observatory & Telescope
Using small telescopes, students will observe objects to understand the significance of these tools in the study of outer space. They will construct reasons to support the claim that telescopes aid in exploration. The center’s historic telescope, one of the nation’s largest, will be the backdrop for the lesson.
Science Standards: 4.E.3A.3.; S.1.A.6
