Students learn how the first photograph of a black hole was made through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizer. This is great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The students figure out what the "Claim" is in the article, they then use data that supports the claim in the "Evidence" section, draw visual evidence and then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the "Reasoning" section.
X-Rays & Gamma-Rays
Speed of Light
This is great for a current event, sub plan, homework, critical thinking, scaffolding and/or reinforcement of concepts!
You get a CER graphic organizer, the key, an editable key, the article, tips for CER and the link to the website in the article.

ESS1.A: The Universe and Its Stars
Earth and its solar system are part of the Milky Way galaxy, which is one of many galaxies in the universe. (MS-ESS1-2)
PS4.B: Electromagnetic Radiation
Electromagnetic radiation (e.g., radio, microwaves, light) can be modeled as a wave of changing electric and magnetic fields or as particles called photons. The wave model is useful for explaining many features of electromagnetic radiation, and the particle model explains other features. (HS-PS4-3)
Students at any grade level should be able to ask questions of each other about the texts they read, the features of the phenomena they observe, and the conclusions they draw from their models or scientific investigations.
In 9–12 builds on K–8 experiences and progresses to using appropriate and sufficient evidence and scientific reasoning to defend and critique claims and explanations about the natural and designed world(s). Arguments may also come from current scientific or historical episodes in science.
Observed patterns of forms and events guide organization and classification, and they prompt questions about relationships and the factors that influence them.
