In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6-12, students use BrainPOP resources to calculate elapsed time in meaningful contexts and use models to understand that the rotation of the Earth causes the passage of hours and the day/night cycle. Students will also use interactive online game play models to explore the basic motions and positioning of the earth-moon-sun system and zodiac constellations, and practice telling time based on the position of the earth, moon, and sun.
