Motions of the Sun Lab

Type of Resource



This Motions of the Sun Lab is an interactive applet from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Astronomy Applet project.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS1-4   Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

MS-ESS1-1   Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
