Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### An Introduction to GPS

GPS is a technological tool that has become available for use by the general public. Navigate the components and science involved in this remote sensing system. Here is a comprehensive collection of slides that would be valuable to share...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### The Age of Early European Explorations & Conquests

Your students' world will literally take shape in this presentation, which chronicles the growing edges of the (flat) earth during European Exploration of New Worlds. Dias, da Gama, Magellean, and Columbus are key players in this game of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Sextant Solutions

Students explore ways a sextant can be a reliable tool that is still being used by today's navigators and how computers can help assure accuracy when measuring angles. This activity will show how computers can be used to understand...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring Maps: Lesson 2 Guide: Navigation

Students explore and examine how maps have been used in navigation. They research how travelers collected observations to keep track of their positions and plotted information on maps. Each student then makes a Mercator projection...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Exploring Maps: Navigation

Pupils engage in a lesson that is concerned with the concept of navigation while research is conducted with the use of a variety of resources. The information is used to expand their perspective of the applications for navigation. The...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Compass Deviation

Students identify and describe the difference between the magnetic north pole and true north. They consider why sailors could not steer a straight course to the New World from the Old.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### And a Star to Steer Her By: A Field Trip Guide for the Planetarium Show

In this field trip study guide for the planetarium show lesson, students construct a model of the Earth and describe the relative positions of the continents using latitude and longitude. Students construct a star chart to find...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Stellar Navigation

Middle schoolers are introduced to the concept of stellar navigation. Inside a portable digital planetarium they identify various stars that were used as a navigational tool. They go through several activities in which they attempt to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Navigating by the Numbers

Students observe how math is important in navigation and engineering. They study how surveyors use math and science to calcute, count, measure, label, and indicate distances on a map. They estimate specific distances.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TE Activity: Northward Ho!

Young scholars design a simple compass. They examine how the Earth's magnetic field has both horizontal and vertical components. They determine how a compass works and work with cardinal directions.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Topo Triangulation

Students investigate how to read a topographical map and triangulate with just a map. They convert a compass measurement to a protractor measurement, reverse a bearing direction, and using a worksheet take a bearing of certain landmarks...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Trig River

Students calcute distances using trigonometry and angle measurements. They estimate the width of the Trig River, measure it and compare their results with their classmates. They collaborate with a group to research and find the results.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Getting to the Point

Middle schoolers determine location by using the technique of triangulation. They imagine that they are out in the wilderness and have come to the top of a ridge. How can one identify the ridge on the topo map? How can one figure out...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TE Lesson: GPS on the Move

Learners participate in a scavenger hunt and a drawing activity to examine the use of Global Positioning Systems including a handheld GPS receiver for personal navigation. They practice using the GPS receivers while collecting data from...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Close Enough?

Students examine how navigation is based on mathematics and how making a mistake in measuring an angle could have an impact on a target. They observe a teacher-led lecture, use a calculator to complete two worksheets, and participate in...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How to be a Great Navigator!

Students examine historical methods of navigation. They discuss the techniques of "Dead Reckoning," "Heaving the Log," and "Chip Log," pretend to sail from Europe to North America using vectors and determine the location of their...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Where Am I: Navigation and Satellites

Students explore the concept of triangulation that is used in navigation satellites and global positioning systems designed by engineers. They determine ways these technologies can help people determine their position or the location of...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Where is Here?

Learners are shown the very basics of navigation. The concepts of relative and absolute location, latitude, longitude and cardinal directions are discussed, as well as the use and principles of a map and compass.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Topos, Compasses, and Triangles, Oh My!

Students triangulate using a compass, topographical (topo) map and a view of outside landmarks. They take a field trip to another location away from school and mark discernible landmarks (like mountains or radio towers) and changes in...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Over the Rivers and Through the Woods

Sixth graders examine the purpose of the keelboat used by the Corps of Discovery on the Lewis and Clark expedition. They assess its strengths and weaknesses for navigating different rivers, and describe its overall purpose for the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Where Am I?

Sudents examine the types of instruments that can be used for marine navigation and position-finding. They practice using an astrolabe to solve trigonometric problems.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Mapping The Great Lakes

Can you fathom a fathom? Through this activity, learners get a grasp of how deep a fathom is and how the floor of The Great Lakes might look. They compare topographic maps to Great Lakes navigation charts, which you will need to obtain...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Navigational Aids Used by Great Lakes Ships

Learners examine a fresnel lens and compare it to simple concave and convex lenses. They measure its focal length and then discuss why this type of lens is useful in a lighthouse system. That is about all there is to this lesson. It can...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Basic Orienteering

Students study orienteering. In this science lesson, students study the parts of a compass and use the compass to set a bearing and follow the bearing on the compass.
