3/12 Scientific Revolution

In Class:

Draw the relationship between the stars, planets, sun and moon. What are other possible configurations?

In three groups, we’ll consider: geocentric theory, heliocentric theory, and Galileo’s trial. We’ll perform a 3-act play on the scientific revolution. How was it similar to the Protestant Reformation?

Galileo’s trial; discussion surrounding what the Church’s response was to his theory; primary source documents.
