Description:

This set of twelve lesson plans is intended to encourage the teaching of astronomy to K-12 students. The lessons are designed to make use of a planetarium projector, but they can be modified for use with different planetarium systems, including the free (General Public License) planetarium software 'Stellarium'. They introduce students to basics of earth's movements, the Greco-Roman constellations, and objects in the sky (for younger students); the differences between stars and planets, planetary motions, phases of the moon; stellar navigation, the solstices and equinoxes, the history of astronomy, and other topics (secondary students). The lessons are available in PDF (for printing) and RTF (for editing) formats.
