The Immensity of the Universe - This lesson package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the Power Point), THREE videos and a student lesson handout as a word document. The Power Point is fun and applicable with THREE videos embedded into the Power Point and many opportunities for inquiry-based learning and discussion.
The minds-on inquiry activities are meant to break down student misconceptions and help guide them to the correct concepts.

The student version of the power point 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.
