Abstract

In Taiwan, earth science is an important elementary school course that introduces students to astronomy. Currently, the earth science
textbooks and teaching materials in elementary schools do not make it easy to reflect on the concept of spatial changes in the universe. Even though students have a keen interest in learning earth science, the abstract nature of astronomy makes it difficult to understand. In order to help elementary school students better understand the planets and constellations of the solar system, this study used Unity 3D interactive technology to develop a 3D interactive gamification astronomy learning system that assisted students in learning the shapes and positions of planets and constellations through interactive simulations; integration of Greek mythology stories and games relating to the constellations helped to make astronomy learning more interesting.
