  4. How High Is It?

  5. How High Is It? How High Is It? An Educator’s Guide with Activities Focused on Scale Models of Distances Grades 5-8 National Mathematics Standards: MEASUREMENT – NUMBER OPERATIONS Grades 6-8 National Technology Standards: NATURE OF TECHNOLOGY Grades 6-8 National Science Education Standards UNIFYING CONCEPTS AND PROCESSES – EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE – SCIENCE & TECHNOGY Grades 5-8

  6. How High Is It? Rationale Many students have difficulty conceptualizing distances on Earth and a more difficult time conceptualizing distances above Earth. In addition, many students may not be able to connect previous knowledge they have acquired in science to chart, for example, where aircraft travel in comparison to weather balloons, sounding rockets, or spacecraft.

  7. How High Is It?

  8. How High Is It? • Why are vertical distances more difficult to • visualize than linear distances? • How high is the highest mountain? • Where do jets fly above Earth? Weather • balloons? Sounding rockets? The Space • Shuttle? • Where above Earth are the auroras and • streaking meteors? • How far does the atmosphere extend above • Earth– or where does space begin?

  9. How High Is It? HOW HIGH IS IT? Activity Page 22 Make a model of Earth’s atmospheric layers on a six Page-high chart and place small pictures of NASA vehicles at the appropriate altitudes Materials: How High Is It? Workshop, Scissors and Tape

  10. Lunar Phases New Waxing Crescent First Quarter Waxing Gibbous Full Waning Gibbous Last Quarter Waning Crescent

  11. How Much Would You Weigh On The Moon? On the Moon, a 100 lb student would weigh how much? The Moon has a gravitational field that is 1/6 of Earth’s 1 / 6 = 0.16 X 100 16 16 lbs

  12. How much would a space suit weigh on the moon if the suit weighs 375 lbs on Earth? 1 / 6 = 0.16 X 375 60 60 lbs!

  13. How much would bar-bells weigh on the moon if they weigh 200 lbs on Earth? 1 / 6 = 0.16 X 200 32 lbs

  14. Stages to the Moon President John F. Kennedy gave the nation the goal of landing men on the Moon before theend of the 1960’s. "...I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth. “

  16. Stages to the Moon LIVE From the Moon CBS NEWS

  17. Earth Moon Distance MODEL THE DISTANCE TO THE MOON Divide distance to Moon by Earth’s Circumference Mean 384,400 km / 40,000 Km 9.61

  18. Bye, Bye, Moon Gravitational interaction (tides on the Earth caused by the Moon) transfers kinetic energy from Earth to the Moon, slowing Earth's rotation and raising the Moon's orbit, currently at a rate of 3.8 centimeters per year. 3.8 centimeters per year 2011 – 1969 = 42 159.6 centimeters
