A quick introduction to many of the major astronomers...Charts, word search, pictures...
From the Introduction to the Introduction: Astronomy is one of those science subjects that lends itself to a chronological study. We have done several studies of the "History of Astronomy" - studying a number of the most influential astronomers in order to see their contributions to the subject of astronomy.
We generally studied one astronomer per week, looking at their lives and their work in the field of astronomy.
The following is a list of many of the astronomers we studied over time; you may find additional ones that you choose to study with your students, or you may want to look at just a few of the major ones. Either way, may your studies bring you closer to an appreciation of the incredible universe in which we live!
