Have you noticed how many things around you rotate? In this unit we are going to investigate how different planets, and even the Sun, rotate around their axes. We will base our research on the textual and visual information from the INTERNET.

In this unit we offer two areas. The first area is where students should go to find a self-study guide for doing their research. It is also where the NASA images are located and where students can do some real "cyboscience".

The second area is for teachers. That's where the lesson plan ideas and teaching suggestions are. Make your choice below.
