May 18-19 It’s So Hard to Say Good-Bye

Monday and Tuesday May 18 and 19: We will be finishing Saturn and the Ice Worlds. Please upload your answers to the questions to the appropriate Box folder with your name in the title of the document. Please read The Lives of Stars, take notes on it and upload them to the appropriate Box folder with your name in the title of the document. If we have time, I will be going over information in a powerpoint from the chapters The Size and Scale of the Universe and Finding Objects in the Night Sky. The accompanying questions are below. You will only HAVE to answer these questions if we have time to go over this information in class. However, if you would like to read the chapters and answer the questions since many of you express having a lot of free time, that would be terrific!

May 11-15 The Planets

Friday May 15: No assignments. Teacher planning day.

Wednesday and Thursday May 13-14: We will begin watching The Planets: Saturn and The Ice Worlds. Again, this is a movie that I own, so we will have to watch it during class time. Please be prepared to answer the questions found below as you watch. Please read the directions! Please also take notes on The Origin of the Universe, the chapter provided below. Then, upload them to the appropriate Box folder with your name in the title.

Monday and Tuesday May 11 and 12: We will finish watching the video on Mars and Jupiter. There are no additional questions beyond The Inner Planets for this part of the video. Please complete the lab at the beginning of the chapter The Size and Scale of the Universe and upload it to the appropriate Box folder with your name in the document title. I have included an answer sheet for your convenience as it is a wordy and at times confusing lab. Please use it.

  • Don’t forget to be taking your weather measurements! If they are not working the best, it is all right. Part of what I wanted was the experience of building it and taking the measurements. We will graph it as best we can on Wednesday.
