Earth, Moon & Sun

Grades 1-5

This first standards-based elementary show for Omnidome beautifully illustrates basic concepts like moon phases and seasons with the dubious help of Coyote. Based on the trickster of Native American lore, Coyote is constantly corrected in his misunderstandings of how things work. A live tour of the Maine sky and its beautiful constellations completes this micro-unit of astronomy.
