Young scholars engage in a lesson plan which shows them that celestial navigation is the art and science of finding one's geographic position by means of astronomical observations, particularly by measuring altitudes of celestial objects - sun, moon, planets or stars. Students measure angles, calculate averages and create a bar graph and calculate circumference.
Using their knowledge of number, measurement, and geometry, learners design a "virtual path" that enables a ladybug to hide under a leaf. Pupils also develop navigational skills by testing to see if their path's accuracy and revising their solutions. This is an interesting lesson, which has excellent websites, worksheets, and in-class activities embedded in it.
