Earth Systems: I Love Cue to the Moon and Back

Description:

In this lesson, students will work in groups to recreate the cyclic patterns of the Earth around the Sun or the Moon around the Earth by programming Cue to “orbit” around a stationary object. They will then join with another group to model how the Earth-Sun-Moon system works together.

Objectives:

Students Will:

  • use Cue and a stationary object to create a model of the Earth-Sun-Moon system.
  • develop an understanding of how the Earth-Sun-Moon system affects the eclipses of the Sun and Moon.
  • develop of how the Earth-Sun-Moon system affects the seasons.
  • work with another group to mimic the movement of the Earth-Sun-Moon system.
  • implement loops and/or events in their program.

Target Grades: 6- 8
