27 slide PowerPoint gives information about:
-- What galaxies are and how they fit in the universe
-- What the 3 main types of galaxies are (spiral, elliptical, and irregular) and their characteristics
-- 4 notable galaxies (Milky Way, Centaurus A, Andromeda, and Canis Major Dwarf)
-- A link to Galaxy Zoo and several slides explaining how to use the citizen science project website to help scientists characterize galaxies.
Includes pictures, 2 YouTube videos, links to articles.
Includes a link to a 10 question Kahoot quiz for students to review information.
Also in the Zip file is an editable Word document for students to cut and glue words, pictures, and notes into a foldable of your choice. One page has complete notes, and a second page has blanks for students to fill in during the PPT presentation.
I created this to use with elementary gifted students, but can be adapted to junior high as well. Both the PowerPoint and Word Doc are editable for you to add or take away information as needed.
