In class students learned about how our view of the solar system went from geocentric (earth-centered) to heliocentric (sun-centered).  Students worked collaboratively on an activity to compare both historical models of the solar system. If you did not complete the Geocentric/Heliocentric activity, please make sure it is done before you come into next class.
