The text book is on Google Classroom for the chapters we have covered and are covering. 

The following link will take you to the Pacing Guide for you to see what topics we have covered in class so far this year. 

All of the Vocabulary and Review Assignments on the Google Classroom page can be completed again to help students review. 

For review ideas listen to a podcast (https://www.startalkradio.net/ by Neil deGrasse Tyson) or find another that is of interest to you about astronomy.

There television shows about Earth and the Solar System (How the Earth Was Made on the History Channel; Cosmos: Possible Worlds started on March 11 but can be streamed online or watched on the National Geographic Channel on Tuesday Nights).

There are documentaries like: From Earth to the Moon, about the space race, The Mystery of Dark Matter, Hubble's Enduring Legacy, and many more that can be streamed, if you already have those services. 

Take some time to go outside at night and look up. What do you see? Can you see any of the constellations we have talked about in class this year? There are apps for your phone, which are free, you can use to help you locate some of them. 

If you listen to a podcast, watch a tv show, watch a documentary or go outside, leave a comment on the Google Classroom page that tells what you did and how it relates to what you have learned in the class so far. 

If students have work that was assigned prior to March 12, 2020 and would like to turn it in, please e-mail me the assignments. If there is a test or a quiz they need to take have the students e-mail me and I will set up a version through Google Classroom. 

If you have any questions please reach out. 

Stay safe and healthy, 

Mrs. Zarkauskas
