Product Description

Question sets and answer keys to accompany Cosmos: A Personal Voyage Episode IX, The Lives of the Stars, which emphasizes chemistry: atoms and where they come from. The question sets work with streaming and DVD versions of the episode. There was a nice article in November, 2017 issue of WIRED magazine titled "Twenty Years After His Death, Carl Sagan Is Still Right".

This episode may currently be streaming online. Search the web for the title of the episode.

[Possible Video Link.] Streaming video links are sometimes ephemeral and may require vigorous searching. Purchasing physical media is advised.

Lessons of Phyz advantages:

  • Running time (from start to beginning of credits) printed at the top
  • A heavy font ensures high legibility even in dim lighting
  • Questions are designed to be answered while the video plays—quick, simple responses keep students engaged without requiring deep reflection that would take them out of the presentation
  • Question types are mixed: fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, check lists, and short answer are common; in some cases, matching or list-making.
  • Certain moments in a documentary merit undivided attention. No questions have been placed in those moments.
  • "Play to the buzzer": Whenever possible, the last question in the set is answered during the last minute of the video.
  • I am a classroom teacher who has used each of these resources in the classroom.
  • If you find competing products online, by all means check them out. They may be cheaper; they may be free. None of them will be as professional, polished, or classroom-ready as this one.

April 2020 UPDATE: In addition to the printable PDFs of the student blank and answer key, a Google Docs version of the student document now included for easier distance learning use.
