Venus Teacher Resource Page
is a set of exercises and lesson plans designed for teachers of
a variety of grade levels to accompany and enrich the study and
discussion of the June 2004 Transit of Venus.
This all-encompassing website prepared by Chuck Bueter will guide
you to instructions for safe viewing; interactive education and
hands-on activities; global observing programs for students; background
information and tutorials; insights into historical endeavors and
the adventures of explorers; the role of spacecraft and the search
for extra-solar planets; and many miscellaneous items relating to
the transit of Venus.
The NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum hosts this website.
The annual Sun-Earth Day for 2004 has selected the transit of Venus
as this year's theme. Opportunities are available to prepare for
the viewing of the event. This website has been developed to provide
the necessary resources and opportunities for participation in our
fourth Sun-Earth Day. The goal is to involve as much of the student
population and the public in this event as possible and to help
them understand the immense importance and excitement surrounding
this and previous transits. Through engaging activities focused
on US and world history, music, technology, math, and astronomy,
classrooms and museums can create their own event or participate
in one of the opportunities the Forum makes available.
