With the Focus On Middle School Astronomy Lab Workbook from Real Science 4 Kids, 3rd edition, students will explore how to create models of the Moon and planets, understand the scale of the solar system, read a star atlas, make a comet, and more!
This 140-page softcover Middle School Astronomy Laboratory Workbook includes 12 hands-on experiments that incorporate the Astronomy concepts found in the Student Textbook. Students will explore concepts such as constellations, measuring distances, lunar and solar eclipses, modeling the Moon, modeling the planets, using a star map, modeling our solar system, discovering life on other planets, classifying galaxies, and searching for nebulae. These engaging experiments are teacher-directed and use mostly household items.
