Planetarium Activities for Student Success
Volume 7: Moons of the Solar System
This program begins with observations of the Earth's Moon and
a modeling activity that shows why the Moon goes through phases
and eclipses. Then the students look at Jupiter's four major moons on
a series of nights and figure out how long each one takes to circle Jupiter.
Finally the students journey through the solar system to see many
moons through the "eyes" of modern spacecraft. Classroom activities
involve students in performing experiments in crater formation,
using Moon maps, and designing lunar settlements.
