This is a series of lessons where students use observations of the sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted. In this unit students will make observations of the sky. Before we begin any predicting, or analyzing patterns, the students need to develop some prior knowledge. They must know what the sun, moon, and stars look like and some of the distinguishing features of each.
