Project Astro @ Lakeland
Astronomer Dr. Knight partners with Ms. Watson’s Earth and Space Science classes
for out-of-this-world learning experiences
Feb. 2014
Dr. Knight creates comet models
Students make observations and collect data on how comets change over time
Students discover that comets are
“dirty snowballs” in outer space
Before apps: Students create and then learn
how to use star charts to find constellations
How much bigger is Jupiter than Earth?
Student teams use dough models to create a scale model of planet sizes
Team success!
Earth is the size of a pea next to Jupiter
Thank you, Dr. Knight and Project Astro.
Even though you study comets, you are our favorite STAR!
