Sky Watchers: Ancient Astronomers

Students close their eyes and picture the sky. They are asked to brainstorm things they may see in the course of a night and day, such as the movement of the sun, moon, and stars. Students work in groups to coduct their research. They compare the information and techniques of the different ancient peoples studied.

I've enjoyed being able to see other teachers' great ideas and implement them in the classroom. Also, the ability to use another teacher's PowerPoint and edit as needed is a huge boon as it saves time (especially since I am teaching a new topic this year).
