Space Science in Action: Astronomy [Videotape].
This videotape recording teaches students about constellations, star movement, and how scientists have studied celestial bodies throughout history from Ptolemy to Copernicus to the work of the Hubble Space Telescope. An interview with Kathy Thornton, one of the astronauts who repaired the Hubble while in orbit, is featured. A hands-on activity guides students in building their own sextant which demonstrates how ancient seafarers navigated using the movement of the stars. Contents include a teacher's guide designed to help science teachers in grades 5-8 by providing a brief synopsis of the program, pre-viewing and follow-up questions, activities, vocabulary, and additional resources.
