Including Students presents a single, kinesthetic model that can be used to explain such varied concepts as rotation, revolution, phases of the Moon and seasons. The outlined activities are meant to be used throughout an entire Astronomy unit. In fact, the authors caution that this collection of activities cannot be completed in one classroom period. Because the activities increase in complexity, the authors recommend that teachers take their time in introducing the model. Then, students will be comfortable in modifying it to explore the more complex concepts. The required materials are easily obtainable and relatively inexpensive. The authors have taken great pains to address misconceptions and to provide questions that teachers can use to probe students' prior knowledge.
