Present a Three-Dimensional Universe Model to Your Students
- Model Daily Motion of Stars and Sun
- Learn to use the sky for navigation
- Teaches students the cause of seasons
Your students will be able to model the apparent daily motions of the stars and the Sun for a variety of latitudes or for any day of the year. With the included data, students will also be able to learn to use the sky for navigation and explain the cause of seasons on Earth. The kit can be used either in the laboratory or at home. It includes 20 clear plastic hemispheres, and ten of the following items: star charts with the 500 brightest stars in both the north and south hemispheres, marking pen, earth space globes, pins to represent the Sun, styrofoam bases, wooden dowels, plastic straws, instructions, and activities.
*Some experiments require students to be outside at sunset.
