Abstract

A question for science teachers during the pandemic is: how do we actively engage students in science, given that in-person instruction will be limited at best? One lesson I use for my solar system course involves naked-eye observations of positions of celestial objects. Such activities train students to take careful measurements, keep detailed records, and comprehend three-dimensional coordinates.
