Earth's Place in Our Universe

Hello All,

In science we are exploring Earth's place in our universe.  We have a particular focus on how the sun and stars move across our sky.  We are exploring these mechanics with abstract and explicit models from many points of view.  We are utilizing sun bracelets and sun dials.  This week we explored an outstanding iPad app that allowed us to explore the sky in detail and track the sun's movements throughout the year.  The free app can be downloaded here.  Feel free to explore the sky and look at the stars that make up the constellations in detail. 

Have fun exploring.
