An introduction to Space. This lesson package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation) and a student lesson handout as a document. The presentation is fun and applicable with FOUR videos embedded in the lesson.
Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.
Included in the lesson package is:
- Office and Word versions of the resources
- The teacher version of the presentation
- The student version of the presentation
- FOUR videos embedded into the presentation
- Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
- The hugeness of Space
- Distances in Space
- Astronomical Units
- Light Years

- Space facts

- Space travel
- "Great introduction; love how it explains the concept of vast distances. Thank you!"
- "My students loved this. Thanks so much."
- "Great intro. Explains how vast space is."
- "Love it"
The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
