Sky Science

• move from a simple view of land and sky to one that recognizes Earth as a sphere in motion within a larger universe

• explore the topics of seasonal cycles, phases of the Moon, and the apparent motion of stars

• observe, describe and interpret the movement of objects in the sky; and identify pattern and order in these movements

Some beginning questions for SKY SCIENCE

What are some objects in space and what are they like?

How is our planet moving and how does it cause our cycles of day and night and our distinct seasons (especially in Canada)?

What regular pattern does the moon follow?

How do we know about what is happening in space?
