Each NSTA Daily Do presents a phenomenon and guidance for engaging students with practices for sensemaking. Thousands of teachers nationwide took advantage of Daily Do last week. Visit the NSTA homepage to see the entire Daily collection.
Teachers and families across the country are facing a new reality of providing opportunities for students to do science through distance and home learning. The Daily Do is one of the ways NSTA is supporting teachers and families with this endeavor.
We encourage families to make time for family science learning (science is a social process!) and are dedicated to helping students and their families find balance between learning science and the day-to-day responsibilities they have to stay healthy and safe.

Trio Of Planets And Moon Before Dawn

April 14: The Moon and mini-planet parade

No matter where you live, if you look at the predawn sky on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, you will see the illuminated side of the moon pointing to a line of three bright planets – Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Jupiter starts the row at the top, Mars lies at the bottom and Saturn in the middle.

The moon and the trio of planets will shine together on the mornings of April 14, 15 and 16. Not to miss this amazing naked-eye sight and great photo opportunity, use the stargazing app Star Walk 2. The app will show you where to look in the sky to find the planets and will help determine the best viewing time for your location.
