This activity will allow students to measure the circumference, diameter, and radius of a circle in a hands-on way. By being able to manipulate a circle and stretch it out the idea of circumference will be more concrete. Students will use each other, desks, and chairs to create circles that can be measured.
In this lesson, students will prepare a presentation defending their opinion about whether money should be spent on additional space exploration using the Hubble or a similar telescope or whether it should be used for immediate research needs on Earth.

In this lesson, students will link what they already know about Aboriginal Australians to the new topic, identify basic and clear differences between modern society and Aboriginal living, and identify what they would like to learn more about Aboriginal Australians.
