This is a simple, yet effective powerpoint. It teaches kids about the different types of galaxies: spiral, elliptical, barred spiral, irregular, and lenticular. It also shows pictures of the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy. We did a cool art project afterwards. Students chose their favorite galaxy, wrote it with a white crayon on black paper, then drew the shape of the galaxy with pencil, filled it in with glue and used different color glitter to make the stars! They turned out to be beautiful!
