                           throughout the year in multiple ways, and should NOT be taught exclusively at the beginning of the year.

      Students know examples of objects in space that are near and far away          Students participate in activities that illustrate how an object will

      Students know that Earth is a planet and there are other planets that          OPTIONAL – Star Lab activities.
       are in space.
      Students know that objects in space are bigger than they appear
       because of the distance from Earth.
