Art in Science: Through Galileo's Telescope!
In this fun, one-time class, we'll travel through history, space, and time to create a beautiful work of art while we learn about the astronomer Galileo, his inventions, and his discoveries about our planet, the solar system, and the universe beyond!

What did Galileo discover when he first peered through his newly-made telescope? Why are the Galilean moons named in his honor and why did he believe Saturn had "ears?" How did he prove the Sun was at the center of the solar system using the phases of Venus? Why were people so upset when he said the Moon wasn't smooth? Learn the answers to all these questions and more while creating a beautiful work of art. Using pencils, markers, and colored pencils, illustrate the solar system as Galileo...
Students will analyze the basic historical implications and background of Galileo's major discoveries. Students will learn how Galileo pioneered the use of telescopes in astronomical observation of the solar system. By the end of the lesson, students will learn how Galileo discovered sunspots, lunar features, the phases of Venus, Jupiter's large moons, Saturn's rings, the planet Uranus, and more!
I have almost two years of experience on Outschool and have instructed students on how to use art to discover Galileo's discoveries for many years in a general classroom setting. As a certified Earth and Space Science, History, and Elementary School educator, I have a plethora of experience in using various methods to teach students new content!
No homework will be assigned with this class.
Students will need 2-3 pieces of white printer paper, white cardstock, OR white coloring paper (the extra 1-2 are for potential "redos"). Cardstock and white coloring paper work best, but printer paper is fine. Students will need a pencil, black marker, and colored pencils (all major colors).
No formal assessment will be given unless requested by parent(s).
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
