ASTRONOMY

Astronomy Test 

 
 
Grade Level Expectations:
1.  The Solar system is made up of objects that orbit the sun and are classified based on their characteristics.
2. The relative positions of motion of Earth, Moon and Sun can ve used to explain observable effects such as seasons, eclipses, and Moon.  FLIPGRID VIDEO LINK
