Simulation of meteorite impacts on Earth.

The activity is inspired by the meteorites collection of San Giovanni in Persiceto Planetarium and Museum (Museo del Cielo e della Terra).

 

Inquiry Learning Phases: 
Orientation (Orientation)
Conceptualisation (Conceptualisation)
Investigation (Investigation)
Labs in use: 

In this lab, pupils can simulate the impact of an object (e.g., an asteroid) on the Earth, Moon or Mars. They can vary parameters such as the diameter, density and velocity of the projectile and see the characteristics of the resulting crater....Read more

Educational objective: 

Learning how some physical variables (speed, angle, mass, kinetic energy) are related in a collision. Making hipotesis on collision effects and verifying them. Learning about orders of magnitudes.

 

 

Scenario: 

basic scenario: investigate variables one by one and find relationships

 

 

Cognitive objectives: types of knowledge: 
Conceptual: Knowledge of interrelationships among the basic elements within a larger structure,
e.g. classifications, principles, theories, etc
Procedural: Knowledge on how-to-do, methods, techniques, subject-specific skills and algorithms, etc
Processes: 
To apply: To help the learner apply information to reach an answer
Organisational requirements: 

Students may use the ILS in a classroom with Interactive Whiteboard and mobile devices or in a Personal Computer lab. They should know physical concepts as mass, density, speed, kinetic energy. More activities about Earth and Space may be...

Students' prior knowledge: 
physical concepts of mass, density, trajectory, speed, motion, gravity, collisions
