Product Description

Engage your students in the mysteries of Space!

This resource gives students a fantastic introduction to The Milky Way Galaxy i.e. what it is, how it was formed, where we are located within it, what lies at its centre, etc.

This lesson is part of a 5-lesson introductory unit on Space (Click here to purchase all 5 lessons together). After teaching the 5 lessons, I ask the students to complete a research project on any space related topic of their choosing (Click here to purchase Space Project for $2). I am always amazed at how interested my students are in Space and how motivated they are to learn more about it. Have fun!!

This Lesson Includes:

- A definition of the Milky Way galaxy

- The location of Earth within the Milky Way

- The structure of the Milky Way

- The size of the Milky Way

- The centre of the Milky Way and its function

- The appearance of the Milky Way

- 6 Discussion/Comprehension questions
