I created this worksheet for my students to demonstrate what they have learned about galaxies. This worksheet could be used as homework, a class worksheet to follow note taking, or as a summative assessment after teaching about galaxies. The first page contains fill-in-the-blank in paragraph form regarding galaxies across the universe as well as details of our own and the classifications of galaxies. There is also a short answer question regarding distinction between galaxy classifications. On the back page, students will be given images of galaxies taken by the Hubble Telescope (photo credit: STSci) and need to classify them as well as answer a question regarding the Hubble deep field image. I hope your students learn as much from this as my students do! Enjoy!
This worksheet should take between 20 and 30 minutes. Answer key is included.
