Description:

In this activity, students compare and contrast the visual perspectives that result when viewing objects from different distances. In part one of this lesson, students view simple shapes from varying distances and record their observations. Then, in part two, students use NASA images to compare observations about Earth's surface as seen from ground level, from an airplane and from the Space Shuttle. The URL opens to the investigation directory, with links to teacher and student materials, lesson extensions, resources, teaching tips, and assessment strategies. As the first investigation in this module entitled, "Exploring Our Planet From Above," the teacher's guide begins with a two-page module overview and a list of all standards addressed. Note that this is investigation one of four found in the Grades K-4 Module 1 of Mission Geography. The Mission Geography curriculum integrates data and images from NASA missions with the National Geography Standards. Each of the four investigations in Module 1, while related, can be done independently.
