What is a scientific model? How can models be used to understand real-world phenomena like the solar system and the April 8 solar eclipse?

Join us to explore astronomy through the lens of the NGSS Practice of Developing and Using Models. Try out kinesthetic models, physical models, and drawings as models, and discuss ideas about implementation with your colleagues. We will use all of these to explore real-world astronomy phenomena—including sunrise/sunset, moon phases, and eclipses—but these pedagogical tools can be applied anywhere in your curriculum.

This workshop is designed for teachers of grades 3-8. All educators are welcome.
