This short set of notes leads students to learn and understand the differences between Asteroids, Comets and Meteors (as well as the difference between Meteors, Meteoroids and Meteorites). It also give visuals to help understand what they look like. At the end is a way to help students understand the difference between comets and meteors. Although this powerpoint is short and has the potential to go by quickly, my students usually have TONS of questions and it tends to lengthen the lesson. I typically also show some videos of actual footage of meteors caught on tape- they LOVE this!
