May 22-26

Weather-permitting we will launch rockets today.

Students will take notes as Benson provides a general overview of NASA - past, present, future.

Students will do a WS.

Students will take notes as Benson explains several concepts related to the Earth-Moon relationship, including tides, phases, and eclipses. Be sure to do this Online Moon Phase Exercise (very good). You do not need to hand anything in, but there will be similar questions on the semester exam. Here is a 10-minute video (ABC News coverage) of the 1979 solar eclipse, including coverage from Helena, Montana!

Students will watch a video "Meteor Strike".
