Abstract

The purpose of this project was to research, design, and present a series of lessons that educated a 5th grade class on the subject of astronomy. This involved presenting four interactive lessons that interested, as well as educated the students, while determining which teaching methods were most effective. We found that physical interaction stimulated the most favorable responses and engaged the students' minds.
