Great 1-2 day hands on activity to teach students the basics related to galaxies and the Milky Way in particular.
*In the visual, these students had no black for the black hole, so used blue instead.*
Does not take very many supplies and is easy to create.
Teaches the following in a very creative, fun way-hope you like!
name of our galaxy
type of galaxy we live in
3 main types of galaxies
what may be at the center of our galaxy
location of our solar system within our galaxy
the basics for what is needed for stars to form
the speed of light
how far our solar system is from the center of our galaxy
what a galaxy is
and a very cool challenge question
