Student learning goals for the Galaxies Lesson:

• describe the composition of galaxies, including features of black holes

• compare the relative size of galaxies to the universe and to stars

• identify different shapes of galaxies and their characteristics

Please examine the images and preview above to see how this resource can help you and your students.

In the zipped file, you will receive a lot:

★ 2-page lesson plan (PDF and editable Microsoft Word).

★ 13-slide editable PowerPoint presentation with hyperlinks to YouTube videos.

★ 4-page editable student notes (PDF and editable Microsoft Word) that coordinate with the PowerPoint in a fill-in-the-blank style, that includes homework/practice questions. A teacher version with blanks filled in is also provided in both file types.

★ 14-pages of editable task cards that can be used as formative assessments. 7 pages of quick checks to be used during class and 7 pages of retrieval practice questions to be later in the unit. (PDF file and editable PowerPoint file).

★ 1-page Galactic Art activity guide (PDF file) with an exemplar image. This Galactic Art has students use an explanation (plus video link in the PowerPoint) to illustrate how galaxies are formed. Students also use images and descriptions to illustrate the 4 different types of galaxies based on their properties.

MOST RESOURCES ARE EDITABLE except where I’ve had to lock clip art for copyright reasons.
