...the relatively complex nature of the following sections, the teacher should be prepared to spend extra time with students who do not immediately understand the concepts presented. It may be helpful if students who do grasp the concepts assist those who do not. Part II The teacher defines the terms latitude, longitude, right ascension and declination and discusses the differences between the two coordinate systems and their uses. (). The teacher models how to plot a star's position given its right ascension and declination (). Divide the students into teams of two. Each team is given blank charts and the coordinates for a set of...

  16.   Mapping and Coordinates Activity
...1. Begin this lesson by taking the students down to the gymnasium. They need to bring their three dimensional models with them. 2. Explain to the students that they will need to build a regional map of the world using the skills learned in the previous lesson. Using direction, compass rose, grids, latitude, longitude, and coordinates the students will use tape and markers to make a map of the world on the gymnasium floor. Give them books to use as references when making the map on the gym floor using the numbers in the books to place the tape. Use the tape as the cross-sections, equator, tropic lines, international date line, a...

  17.   Is Temperature Effected By How Close You Are To The Equator?
...emperature of a location is effected by how close you are to the equator. Objectives Students will: Determine data needed. Choose participating schools to represent the data needed. Work collaboratively on-line with other schools to gather and interpret weather data. Infer the relationships between latitude and temperature. Predict the temperature range for a given location, based on the latitude principle. Materials and Resources World map. Science Journals. In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware and software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the LETSN...
