This product is a color-by-number activity that allows students to answer various questions relating to the various components of the universe. And YES- even secondary students love to color!
This product is great for assessing the following standard:
TEKS 8.8: The student knows characteristics of the universe. The student is expected to:
A) Describe components of the universe, including stars, nebulae, and galaxies, and use models such as the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram for classification. (Readiness Standard)
There are 10 questions with 3 possible answer choices each. Each answer choice corresponds to a different color. If all of the correct answer choices are chosen, then their final picture will be colored correctly to reflect complete mastery of the content.
To be successful with this activity, students should be able to:
•state chararacteristics of nebulae
•state characteristics of the 3 main types of galaxies (spiral, elliptical, irregular)
•explain the formation of stars (develop from a cloud of dust & gas, made up of gases that give off light due to nuclear fusion, etc..)
•the main elements that make up stars (hydrogen and helium)
•identify what a black hole is
•know the difference between planet, solar system, galaxy, universe
This could be used as a quick assessment, a homework assignment, additional practice, extra credit, or for early finishers. These are also great for days when you have to be out of the classroom - a sub can easily take over this lesson!
