Lesson Description

Save your kingdom from revolt by demonstrating that solar eclipses are predictable, natural phenomena, in order to put a stop once and for all to Lord Thistle's rumors of a dragon eating the Sun. Crack the code on this phenomena and share your eclipse knowledge with your kingdom before it descends into anarchy!

Central Question: How does the tilt of the Moon's orbit affect the observable patterns of solar and lunar eclipses?

Instructional Objective: Explain predictable eclipse patterns using a model to discover and demonstrate the evidence of phenomena at different scales such as the Moon’s inclination (orbital plane) in combination with the position of the Sun, Earth, Moon system.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learning Outcome #1: Use a model to investigate and explain the relationship of the Moon’s inclination and the pattern of observed solar eclipses over time.

Prerequisites

  • Moon Phases

  • Kingdom in Peril: Ep1
