Students will examine the true reason for the seasons using flashlights, plastic balls, and toothpicks.

Solar System Scale
Don't just imagine our Solar System! You have to see it to believe it!

Star's Life Cycle
Students create the stages of the stars? life cycle using common materials.

Sun's Path
Students will trace the daily apparent path of the sun for the beginning of each season at different latitudes. Preparation includes drilling holes in your celestial sphere's.
