Constellations

Middle schoolers explore the major constellations. After reviewing the Earth's basic motions and their significance, students discuss the moon's orbit and revolutions. Using a Digitarium Alpha portable planetarium projector, they observe at least four major constellations and their location in the sky at various times and dates. Middle schoolers predict the phases of the moon and examine a lunar or solar eclipse.
