The Moscow Planetarium launches interactive classes for children 5-10 years old as part of the new online project Astroguide. Young participants will be able to find answers to questions about the world around them, the official website of the planetarium reports.
The “Star Lessons” for students of different ages include 4 online broadcasts. The first one was held on May 23. Students learned why everything around us is colourful and how is a colour born. The second lesson which was held on May 30 gave children a chance to learn about how different shades of colour are born and taught them to make shades of the 7 colours of the rainbow.
The third lesson called “My Home is My Compass!” will be held on June 6 at 12 pm. Children will be able to turn their home into a real compass and learn how to find the South, North, West, and East using windows, make a home sundial, and find a home meridian. The fourth lesson “Secrets of the Moon!” is planned for June 13 at 12 pm. Children will arrange real home eclipses of the Moon and the Sun, learn the Moon Waltz, and create a lunar diary.
