The school curriculum in many countries includes astronomical topics such as the seasons, phases of the moon, planets, and stars. Yet teachers at all school levels generally do not know much astronomy and have difficulty teaching that part of the curriculum. Even if
they have some knowledge of the subject, they may not have the resources to illustrate it and to create enthusiasm in their students. One solution is to take them to a place specializing in astronomy education - a suitable science center or museum or planetarium or public observatory.
