Collect Space RockStars
Observation 1 Supplies Needed:
- Outdoors (with rocks)
Observation 2 Supplies Needed:
- Google Sky App OR SkyView Lite
Hypothesis: How many different rocks/constellations do you think will you see?
Do The Experiment: Create a virtual rock collection, using a camera, go rock hunting and take a picture of all the different rocks you find. AND/OR Use either the Google Sky App or SkyView Lite to go stargazing from indoors.
Reflect How We Can Take It Further: Can you figure out what type of rocks they are? Next time you are able to go stargazing, can you point out the different constellation without using the app.
Apply What We Learned: Why do you think it important to observe and collect data when conducting science experiments?
