In this activity, students work in groups to research Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Hans Lippershey, or James Metius, scientists who all made advances related to the telescope. Each group will share results by making a presentation to the class. Then the class will decide who, if anyone, they think should be given credit for inventing the telescope, and why. They will then summarize their findings ... Full description.

Because of the tilt of Earth's axis, Polaris (the North Star) maintains a consistent location in the northern skies as observed from our vantage point here on Earth's surface. The observed height of Polaris above the horizon (altitude in degrees of arc) is equal to latitude. Because of this relationship, navigators have taken advantage of Polaris for at least 2000 years. In this activity students ... Full description.

This activity teaches students how bathymetric maps (topographic maps of underwater landforms) are made by using sonar. Students use a simulated sonar exercise to map something they cannot see and then see how close they were to the actual shape. They produce a bathymetric map and answer questions about this process.
