Models of the Solar System, Earth, Sun and Moon
Produced by Teachers TV, as part of the Teaching Astronomy and Space series, this video looks at the science behind our solar system and how astronomers are exploring it.
Physics teacher and solar astronomer Simon Foster explores how our understanding of the solar system has developed from early models that placed the Earth as the centre of the solar system.
Practical demonstrations provide teachers with useful ideas for lessons, such as the showing the phases of the moon and the explaining how axial tilt causes seasonal weather.
The video helps to illustrate careers in science and aspects of how science works.
