In this activity, students will graph the maximum altitude of the sun and the moon in the sky throughout the year in order to study the seasonal changes in both the sun and the moon's path throughout the sky.  Students will also keep track of the moon phases to see if there is a correlation between the moon's altitude, the sun's altitude, and the phase of the moon.

In this activity, students will assign Hubble galaxy classifications to several galaxies based on pictures of the galaxies.  Students will have to explain how they cam up with their classification and will have the opportunity to compare their classification to the actual classification.

In this astronomy activity, students will construct an HR diagram by plotting the magnitude and surface temperatures of the 20 brightest stars in the sky and the 20 stars closest to us.  Students will then label and analyze their graphs to learn about what the H-R diagram can tell us.

This is a whole unit on the Sun-Earth-Moon System. This unit covers the Earth and its makeup, the Sun and its makeup, the moon and its makeup, and how all three interact to create the seasons, moon phases, eclipses, and the tidesThis package includes:1.

In this activity, students graph high and low tide data in order to study the fluctuations in these figures throughout the month.  Students also add the phases of the moon to their graphs in order to better understand how the orientation of the sun, Earth, and moon at different times of the month affects the heights of the tides.This activity was designed for use in a high school astronomy class.

Students also add the phases of the moon to their graphs in order to better understand how the orientation of the sun, Earth, and moon at different times of the month affects the heights of the tides.This activity was designed for use in a high school astronomy class.

In this activity, students will be graphing the sun's altitude at solar noon throughout the year.  In the end, they will have drawn an "analemma", a phenomenon in which the sun draws out a figure eight when seen at the same time and at the same place throughout the year.

In this activity, students will be graphing the sun's altitude at solar noon…

In this high school astronomy activity, students will plot the locations of the moon around the Earth for one month.  They will then draw where the shadow would be on the moon based on the location of the sun and predict the phase of the moon for that location.This activity is designed to be handed out in two parts:  one is the instructions, the other is the "Lunar Phases Data Sheet" with the background and analysis questions on the back.

Black hole that was first to be identified in our galaxy underwent dramatic   brightening as it devoured material stripped off orbiting companion star

Black hole emitted red flashes with power of 1,000 suns, study reveals

In this lab activity, students will study black holes by creating their own. Students create the collapsing core of a supernova, which they use to determine the radius of the event horizon of their "tin foil black hole". Answer key is included.

This unit test was created for use in a high school astronomy class to conclude a section on the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon and their interactions.  It is designed to be used with scantrons or an LMS.  Included with the test is a study guide that has been created to go along with the test.

This secondary school level Astronomy/Earth Science activity is taken from a NASA quiz that was given to early Apollo astronauts.  In this activity, students are asked to imagine that they are stranded on the moon, away from their ship, and that they have to get back there.
