This activity is an assessment activity that allows you and your students to see what they know and understand about Earth's place in the solar system and universe. Used both before and after a unit of astronomy instruction, it can make student learning visible in a compelling way. It can also be used to begin discussion about the nature of scientific models. This activity is part of a DVD that is a professional development resource for educators. Many new astronomy learners, students and adults alike, are unfamiliar with the universe beyond the solar system. Instructions for obtaining the DVD and registering for the professional development workshop are contained on the website.
