Print-and-go worksheet on the color/temperature and lifespan of stars!
Supports MS-ESS1-2 and MS-ESS1-3.
The first page of this worksheet has students make modifications to a Hertzsprung-Russel diagram by highlighting the labels and shading the stars by color. This helps them be able to interpret the diagram a little easier as they complete the worksheet. They then answer 10 questions based on the diagram.
The second page of the worksheet focuses on the lifespan of stars. Students answer 10 questions on the lifespan of stars based on the provided diagram, but using a textbook would be helpful, too. A textbook on the subject would be helpful for the this section.
