- The stars appear to travel through the sky in a predictable daily pattern. This pattern can be explained by the rotation of Earth.
- The sun, moon, and many night-time stars appear to rise and set, while some night-time stars appear to travel in circles. This pattern can be explained by the rotation of Earth and the position of the stars.
- Stars are always "out," but the sun's brightness washes them out during the day. That is why we can only see them at night.
Video Evidence of Learning:
- Create a video that demonstrates the following concepts from today's lesson. Use any models, props, videos, or photos that you might need:
- Demonstrate and explain how stars appear to travel through the night-time sky in a predictable daily pattern. What does this have to do with the rotation of the earth?
- Explain why stars are visible at night, but not during the daytime.
- Explain why the sun, moon, and many night-time stars appear to rise and set, while some night-time stars appear to travel in circles.
- Describe and explain any other concepts that you learned during today's lesson.
- No reflection questions today (since the video synthesizes your knowledge well).
- the earths wobble is always changing so zodiac symbols right now are 1 off
- you can see Gemini anytime of the month but if you look up high you can see vega
