Create the cosmos in your classroom with this innovative software that brings the heavens down to Earth. Written by teachers for teachers, this brilliantly integrated curriculum tracks national science standards, and comes fully equipped with lesson plans, assessment tests, hands-on activities, DVD movie content, and more. Designed to allow for many different explanations of the same concept to ensure understanding, the explorations outlined in this curriculum build on ideas through interaction. The software also allows for visualization of difficult concepts. Travel from anywhere on Earth to any planet or star to help your students visualize the size and distances between objects to gain a deeper understanding of the scale of the universe.Starry Night computer exercises, hands on activities and thought-provoking discussion questions encourage students to explore advanced topics with understanding gained from earlier lessons. The ability to interactively manipulate time and space encourages questioning, experimentation and exploration. Guided inquiry-based learning also allows students to make their own observations and conclusions. Specifically created in accordance with national standards and grade level appropriate curriculum, the DVD-ROMs are available for high school or middle school study.
