National Astronomy Day: Bringing the Universe to Your Students
Fendrich, Jean; Brown, Mark
Science Scope, v35 n6 p45-51 Feb 2012
How do teachers help students realize their place in the universe? How do they teach the relationship among the Earth, Moon, stars, and galaxies during daylight hours? Most teachers assume that astronomy is a difficult subject to teach in the classroom and that without a planetarium little can be learned. In this article, the authors discuss National Astronomy Day and demonstrate how to successfully bring astronomy into the school. (Contains 7 figures, 4 online resources and 1 resource.)
