                                     Student instructions

Introduction
This assessment activity requires you to present a visual presentation showing your
understanding of the effects of astronomical cycles on planet Earth.
The spin and tilt of Earth, the orbit of Earth around the Sun, and the orbit of the Moon around
Earth, has a profound effect on the conditions on Earth. To do this assessment activity you
will need to use images, diagrams, and notes.

Demonstrate an understanding of at least two of the following.
The astronomical cycles:
   The spin of Earth
   The orbit of Earth around the Sun
   The orbit of the Moon around the Earth
   The effect of the tilt of Earth and the heating effect of the Sun.
The effects on Earth:
   Day and night
   Seasons
   Changes of temperature during the day and night
   Changes of temperature with the changes in season at the North and South
   poles, latitude of New Zealand, Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and the
   Equator.
   Formation and the direction of winds in the Southern hemisphere
   Direction of surface ocean current flows in the Pacific Ocean
   Phases of the Moon
   Formation of tides
   Neap and Spring tides.
Task

1.     Research
(a)    Collect information about at least TWO of the astronomical cycles listed AND their
       effects on Earth. This information should include images, diagrams, statistical data
       and general information.

(b)    Gather your research into a folder to allow you to use it when you write your report.
       This folder will be needed in the week starting October 15th (Week 1, term 4). You
       may be given some class time for research, but some homework time will be
       necessary.

2.     Report
(a)    You have 3 periods (3 hours) in class during week 1 Term 4, to use the information
       in your resource folder to produce a visual resource. This will be done individually,
       under exam conditions. The report may be a poster or a written report with images or
       diagrams.

(b)    Images and diagrams from your research folder may be used, but explanations must
       be in your own words.

(c)    In your report:

               Clearly describe at least TWO astronomical cycles from the list given
               AND explain all of the effects each has on Earth.

               Explain the links between the different astronomical cycles (and their effects)
               you have chosen. ie. How do they influence each other?

  • 1. RUTHERFORD COLLEGE SCIENCE Achievement Standard Science90954 V1:Demonstrate understanding of the effects of astronomical cycles on planet Earth Resource reference: Science 1.15A Resource title: Astronomical cycles and their effects on Planet Earth Credits: 4 Achievement Achievement with Merit Achievement with Excellence Demonstrate understanding of Demonstrate in-depth Demonstrate comprehensive the effects of astronomical cycles understanding of the effects of understanding of the effects of on planet Earth. astronomical cycles on planet astronomical cycles on planet Earth. Earth. Student instructions Introduction This assessment activity requires you to present a visual presentation showing your understanding of the effects of astronomical cycles on planet Earth. The spin and tilt of Earth, the orbit of Earth around the Sun, and the orbit of the Moon around Earth, has a profound effect on the conditions on Earth. To do this assessment activity you will need to use images, diagrams, and notes. Demonstrate an understanding of at least two of the following. The astronomical cycles: The spin of Earth The orbit of Earth around the Sun The orbit of the Moon around the Earth The effect of the tilt of Earth and the heating effect of the Sun. The effects on Earth: Day and night Seasons Changes of temperature during the day and night Changes of temperature with the changes in season at the North and South poles, latitude of New Zealand, Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, and the Equator. Formation and the direction of winds in the Southern hemisphere Direction of surface ocean current flows in the Pacific Ocean Phases of the Moon Formation of tides Neap and Spring tides.
  • 2. Task 1. Research (a) Collect information about at least TWO of the astronomical cycles listed AND their effects on Earth. This information should include images, diagrams, statistical data and general information. (b) Gather your research into a folder to allow you to use it when you write your report. This folder will be needed in the week starting October 15th (Week 1, term 4). You may be given some class time for research, but some homework time will be necessary. 2. Report (a) You have 3 periods (3 hours) in class during week 1 Term 4, to use the information in your resource folder to produce a visual resource. This will be done individually, under exam conditions. The report may be a poster or a written report with images or diagrams. (b) Images and diagrams from your research folder may be used, but explanations must be in your own words. (c) In your report: Clearly describe at least TWO astronomical cycles from the list given AND explain all of the effects each has on Earth. Explain the links between the different astronomical cycles (and their effects) you have chosen. ie. How do they influence each other?
