CER- RED SHIFT/BLUE SHIFT RESEARCH ACTIVITY
***COMPLETELY UPDATED WITH EXTRA PRODUCT!***
The red shift and blue shift are used to determine our location with respect to other bodies within the universe. This assignment is typically conducted after the sound and light units. Students love all things space and this is no exception.
Students begin with the following question "Is the universe expanding? How is Doppler effect relevant for proof?" From here they begin research about the topic, linking what they have learned in class, and gathering evidence from research to form an answer.
CER stands for claim, evidence, and reasoning. A CER is a great way to get students writing scientifically. They cannot just give an answer, they must support it by evidence and show the connection with reasoning.
This Product Includes:
-Pre-lesson Instruction and Activity Concept Map
-Teacher Instructions for Implementation and Formatting
-CER Activity for Red Shift/ Blue Shift
-Gallery Walk Peer Review Worksheet/ Rubric
I use this assignment for both my physics honors and AP physics, however, if you cover Doppler effect in sound and light for physical science you can use this too.
Want enough CER activities for the entire year??? No Prep for the teacher! Check out my CER Journal at the link below:
