Gravity, heat, wind, and water are a powerful troupe
of forces at work in the universe. Individually and as partners, they
cruise the cosmos creating change. In this expedition, we encouraged
students to ask themselves:
- How do these forces shape Earth and objects in space?
- How do these forces impact cultures and history?
- How does measurement help us understand these forces?
We travelled to the Southworth Planetarium
at USM to see how astronomers explain the creation of objects in space.
Throughout the expedition we examined the forces at work in several
different settings. We found out how early humans described these forces
in myth and story, and researched the forces at work in space and on
Earth in specific events such as hurricanes and volcanic eruptions. Our
final product was an interpretive performance staged at King Middle
