Astronomy: Gravity, Stars and Galaxies

Sixth graders examine the theories of the origin of the universe, the ideas held by the earliest of astronomers, planetary motion, and stars and constellations. Additionally, learners look into how space travel affects humans. This series of 12 lessons is well worth looking into, as the ideas presented, activities engaged in, and depth of study present is most-impressive. Terrific for young astronomers!

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
