In Astronomy, students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods, and
make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study
the following topics: astronomy in civilization,
patterns and objects in the sky, our place in
space, the moon, reasons for the seasons, planets, the sun, stars, galaxies, cosmology, and space
exploration. Students who successfully complete Astronomy will acquire knowledge within a
conceptual framework,
conduct observations of the sky, work collaboratively, and develop
critical
