Earth, Moon and Sun

November 22nd @ 1:00 pm  

Run time approx. 35 minutes

Earth, Moon, & Sun explores the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system. Native American stories are used throughout the show to help distinguish between myths ans science. The program helps viewers understand why the Sun rises and sets, along with the basics of solar energy. The Moon's orbit, craters, phases and eclipses along with past and future space exploration to the moon and beyond are explored. While appropriate for general audiences, students in grade two through five will enjoy this look at the Earth, Moon and Sun system.
