The first introductory lesson given in my class which includes an overview of astronomy - our place in space; how objects are located in space; time and the seasons.
PowerPoints include many graphics and several supporting links to short videos (some videos may have brief advertisements which can be skipped near the beginning with youtube.com).
PowerPoint slides also contain slide-sorter notes for the instructor based on student most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject.
(Please rate this free program if interested - thanks!)
All PowerPoint programs; ActivInspire reviews; student note guides; worksheets/activities; labs and assessments can be found under the "Complete Astronomy Unit I Introduction to Astronomy" zip file.
Terms and keywords in this lesson include:
Hubble Space Telescope
N / S celestial pole
Astronomical Unit (AU)
