HOTS:
Use previous information to ask questions, propose solutions, make decisions, design experiments, cause/effect,
compare, conclude, describe, examine, identify, and observe.
Assessment questions:
How does the position and motion of the Earth cause seasonal change throughout the year?
How does the position and motion of the moon cause moon phases, eclipses, and tides? What
effect does the rotation and the revolution of the Earth have on observation of objects in the
sky? How are the predictable motions of objects in the solar system described?
Key Vocabulary:
Solar system, planet, dwarf planet, asteroid, comet, astronomy, star, universe, galaxy.

Materials, Visuals/Resources:

Fusion workbooks
Laptop
Whiteboard
Colored pencils, crayons, pen and pencil
Paper
How lesson relates to African centeredness:
This lesson relates to African centeredness through teaching our students how everything
functions around something. We need the sun to survive along other elements that continue
to help us grow.
