Teaching With Books
Before computers and other technologies were invented to help people travel, sailors like Christopher Columbus used the sky to navigate the seas. This method is called celestial navigation. Sailors used celestial bodies, or objects in space, to measure time and distance. Using the sun, moon, and stars, sailors could calculate how long they had traveled. They could also determine where or not they were going in the right direction.
Owls are nocturnal animals, which means they are active at night. They have very big eyes which help them see well in the dark. But they can't move their eyeballs within the eye socket, like humans can. Instead, they can rotate their necks almost all the way around in order to see in different directions.
