Astronomy and Earth Science Experiments for Communities


These experiments are designed for classically educating communities with multiple ages (preschool through 6th grade) in a group. Some lessons require the group to be broken down into groups. It’s assumed there are multiple adults in the room who can help with activities. Two or three adults should be sufficient for any given lesson.
However they can certainly work in traditional learning environments.

Each experiment follows the Scientific Method

Tutor Notes:

  • As materials allow, break students up into group to allow for maximum participation. Some experiments already indicate that they favor smaller groups.
  • Create groups with mixed ages and encourage older students to help younger students complete tasks and fill out their handouts.
  • During the experiments, try to involve as many students as possible by assigning them various jobs during the experiment or having them read for you.

The supplies are basic and inexpensive.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
