One World, One Sky
Recommended for: Kindergarten
Students explore the night sky with Big Bird, Elmo, and Hu Hu Zhu, a new friend from China. This full-dome video from Sesame Street and the National Science Foundation shows students how to find the Big Dipper and North Star, as well as taking them on an imagination-fueled trip to the moon.
ESS K.3.1 Patterns are observed when measuring the local weather, including how humans and other organisms impact their environment.
Patterns in the Night Sky: The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars
Recommended for: 1st Grade
ESS 1.3.1 Patterns of movement of the sun, moon and stars as seen from Earth can be observed, described, and predicted.
The Changing Shape of the Earth, Moon, and Planets
Recommended for: 2nd Grade
ESS 2.3.1 Some events on Earth occur quickly, others can occur very slowly.
Weather & Climate: Going to Space To Learn About Earth and its Neighbor
Recommended For: 3rd Grade
Students learn how satellites help scientists study and predict the weather, the relationship between weather and climate and the factors that influence them, and how Earth’s weather and climate compare to other planets.
ESS 3.3.1 Climate describes patterns of typical weather conditions over different scales and variations; historical weather patterns can be analyzed.ESS 3.3.2 2. A variety of weather hazards result from natural process; humans cannot eliminate weather-related hazards but can reduce their impacts.
Light & Motion: The Moon, Stars, and Planets
Recommended for: 4th Grade
While exploring the night sky, the moon, and planets in our solar system, students learn about light-creating and light-reflecting bodies; why some objects are brighter than others; how the moon, planets, and other celestial bodies move in relation to each other; and what happens when objects collide.
ESS 4.3.1 Earth has changed over time. ESS 4.3.3. Earth's physical features occur in patterns.
The Shape of Things: What Makes the Stars, Moon, and Planets Look the Way They Do?
Recommended for: 5th grade
Certain stars consistently appear brighter than others, while the moon seems to be constantly changing. Students explore the reasons the celestial objects we see from Earth appear as they do, then launch into the solar system to explore how gravity and other forces shape objects including asteroids, moons, and planets.
ESS 5.3.1 Stars range greatly in size and distance from Earth, and this can explain their relative brightness. ESS 5.3.2 Earth’s orbit and rotation and the orbit of the moon around earth cause observable patterns.
The Physics of Our Planet and Solar System
Recommended for: Middle School
From motion and gravity to weather and climate, students learn about a range of Earth and space science concepts while exploring the night sky, viewing Earth from space, and venturing out into the solar system.
ESS MS.3.1 Motion is predictable in both solar systems and galaxies. ESS MS.3.2 The solar system contains many varied objects held together by gravity. Solar system models explain and predict eclipses, lunar phases, and seasons.
