Twisted Astronomy: A Tour of the Outer Planets in Our Solar System
In this 6-week astronomy class learners will explore the 4 outer planets in our solar system, one planet at a time, while creating a booklet of information anyone would need to be a "tourist" in these places.
Let's tour our solar system together! Each week we will learn facts about a different part of the solar system, learning the kinds of information we would gather before touring any location. I will be the tour guide through this trip through the solar system, and learners will complete a booklet of information that will allow them to explain their trip to other people. Students will learn important facts such as average temperature, length of day, important locations to tour on each planet,...
Students will know the names of the outer planets of our solar system as well as distinct features of each of the planets.
I specialize in finding fun twists to standard curriculum to help my students build critical thinking skills as well as scientific knowledge. By adding a new twist to a familiar topic we can expand our thinking to include new possibilities. I have taught science to homeschool students for the last 15 years and during that time I have developed many teaching techniques and hands-on projects to help students explore concepts in new and exciting ways. I have also taught several classes specifically about astronomy in which I allowed students to lead the choice of topics, helping me to know what learners want to know about space.
I will provide weekly printouts for learners to use in class. Learners will need these, a pencil, and colored pencils or markers each week.
