Using the Moon as a Tool for Discovery-Oriented Learning.
Cummins, Robert Hays; Ritger, Scott David; Myers, Christopher Adam
Journal of Geoscience Education, v40 n2 p142-46 Mar 1992
Students test the hypothesis that the moon revolves east to west around the earth, determine by observation approximately how many degrees the moon revolves per night, and develop a scale model of the earth-sun-moon system in this laboratory exercise. Students are actively involved in the scientific process and are introduced to the importance of observation and critical thinking. (Author/PVD)
