sun, moon, stars, clouds, birds, and airplanes all have properties,
locations, and movements that can be observed and described.
objects in the solar system are in regular and predictable motion.
Those motions explain phenomena such as the day, the year, phases
of the moon, and eclipses. (5-8)

and the units, systems, and processes of measurement.
- Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas
to determine measurements.
