    Activity 2: Constellations & Ancient Cultures & the path of the sun

    SC.8.E.5.9: Explain the impact of objects in space on each other including:
    1. the Sun on the Earth including seasons and gravitational attraction
    2. the Moon on the Earth, including phases, tides, and eclipses, and the relative position of each body.

    Activity 4: Tour of the Solar System
    Thanks to many years of space probes, we now have beautiful pictures of many of the objects in our solar system. A good starting point would be to have students use the search tool to investigate the planets of our solar system. But don't stop there, Stellarium has many other solar system objects as well. A moon tour would be appropriate for fifth graders especially.
