I use Dinah Moche's popular work "Astronomy: A Self-Teaching Guide
" as a textbook for my elective high school Astronomy class. During my years of teaching Astronomy, I have prepared PowerPoint slides to accompany each chapter that I use from the book. I offered these teaching slides for free as a service to the TpT community.
I have also created crossword puzzle handouts for chapters 01-07 of Moche’s book. The puzzles can serve as a review for the vocabulary terms for each chapter, and they are also a companion to the separate Study Guides that are available in my TpT Store.
The PDF file includes student copies of each puzzle and teacher keys.
Topics: The Starry Sky; Light & Telescopes; The Stars; The Sun; Stellar Evolution; Galaxies; The Universe
Moche's book is an excellent general overview of Astronomy, and I recommend its use as a primary teaching textbook or secondary resource. The first seven chapters of "Astronomy: A Self-Teaching Guide" provide reading material for an entire class of stellar or sidereal astronomy. Chapters eight through eleven provide reading for an entire class of solar system or planetary astronomy. The book is obtainable from Amazon or any major chain bookstore.
