This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 9-12. It focuses on how astronomers use light properties, and the doppler-effect (redshift), to determine that stars are moving away from the Earth and the universe is expanding. It includes objectives, materials, procedures, discussion questions, evaluation ideas, performing extensions, suggested readings, and vocabulary. ... Full description.

This lesson plan is part of the Center for Educational Resources (CERES), a series of web-based astronomy lessons created by a team of master teachers, university faculty, and NASA researchers. In this activity, students view images of galaxies and develop a classification scheme. They then compare and contrast their scheme with that developed by Edwin Hubble. This lesson contains expected outcomes ... Full description.

Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe. While the physics of these objects is not understood, and they cannot be seen directly, indirect observations have revealed for certain that black holes do exist. This animation shows an artist's conception of what it might be like to see a super-massive black hole in the center of a spiral galaxy. A background essay and list of discussion ...

This reference page serves as a precursor to an activity on fusion reactions within stars. It explains that in the evolutionary path of high mass stars, once stars are five times or more massive than our Sun they reach the red giant phase and, being unstable, they progress from red giant to supernova. While many of the more common elements are made through nuclear fusion in the cores of stars, it ... Full description.

This Why Files article investigates the neutrino particle, and why scientists are interested in finding them. The neutrino was 'invented' by a physicist to balance out an equation in the 1950's, and ever since, astronomers and physicists have been looking for these particles as traces to the early universe. The article looks at how neutrinos can be detected in Antarctica, and the universal clues they ... Full description.

This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 9-12. It addresses the question of how astronomers know the evolution of a star without being able to see it happen. Students look at the different stages in the lives of stars, from protostars to red giants and black holes. The lesson includes objectives, materials, procedures, discussion questions, evaluation ideas, ... Full description.
