This is the ultimate lesson for teaching STARS! In this lesson your students will learn about star definition, nuclear fusion, star systems, star formation, and star death for stars of different masses. This bundle of resources includes a lesson plan, PowerPoint, student notes, practice questions and formative assessment pieces – all are completely editable!

This lesson bundle also includes an amazing activity in which your students will create a Life of a Star Flipbook. The Life of a Star Flipbook summarizes the formation of stars of low mass, average mass, high mass and very high mass stars in a nebula, protostar, their expansion, collapse and the different remnants they become when they die.

Student learning goals for the Stars Lesson:

• describe the composition of stars

• sequence the birth, life and death of stars

• apply the life cycle of stars to the fate of our Sun

Please examine the images and preview above to see how this resource can help you and your students.

In the zipped file, you will receive:

★ 2-page lesson plan (PDF and editable Microsoft Word).

★ 30-slide editable PowerPoint presentation with hyperlinks to YouTube videos.

★ 6-page editable student notes (PDF and editable Microsoft Word) that coordinate with the PowerPoint in a fill-in-the-blank style, that includes 6 homework/practice questions (4 pages of notes, 2 pages of homework questions). A teacher version with blanks filled in is also provided in both file types.

★ Life of a Star Flipbook. Students will summarize the sequence of the lives of low-mass stars, average mass stars (like our Sun), high mass stars (resulting in neutron star remnant) and very high mass stars (resulting in black holes). The flipbook is a 4-page PDF (2 student pages, 2 pages of answer keys).
