#### Earth Science Regents: The Ellipse

Starting with the instructions to draw an ellipse, and with great pictures, this sheet should help your pupils learn the shapes and measurements involved. Using push pins and string, your class can discover the axis and focus points...

Lesson Planet

#### Eccentricity and Sound

What do Lady Gaga and Dame Edith Sitwell have in common? As they examine Sitwell's poetry, class members learn that the similarities are far more than their unique appearance.

Lesson Planet

#### Orbits and Effects

What does your world revolve around? Challenge the class as they learn about orbits and the effects of them on our modern world. Young astronomers begin by measuring ellipses and calculating the eccentricity of Earth's orbit. Then, they...

Lesson Planet

#### Orbital Bliss

Most young mathematicians are aware that the planets don’t orbit the sun in a circle but rather as an ellipse, but have never studied this interesting feature. This resource looks at the planetary orbits in more detail and helps learners...

Lesson Planet

#### Orbits Worksheet #2

Brief, but beneficial, this resource draws space scientists into the orbit of a moon around its planet. Assignees answer five multiple choice style questions using a diagram of the planet, the moon's orbit, its focal points, and the...

Lesson Planet

#### Lab: Kelper's Laws of Planetary Motion

High school astrophysicists perform the classic activity of using a loop of string and two push pins to draw ellipses and calculate eccentricity. They also answer questions and solve problems using Kepler's laws of planetary motion. The...

Lesson Planet

#### Photo Nets (3D)

The sky is the limit when printing custom 3-D shape templates from this site. Not only can you pick your shape and pattern, there is an option to upload an image for the different sides of the geometric shape. Let your learners have fun...
