Star Life Cycles – Google Slides Interactive Presentation

$3.00

Description

Are you tired of teaching with presentations that look like they were probably created in 1995? Are you ready to move past the “sit and get” style of whole group instruction? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then this resource is for you!

 

I spent almost a decade fighting to keep students entertained. By the end of the day, I was exhausted and the kids were bored. I created this line of interactive lessons to solve that problem for myself and hopefully for you too.

 

Keep your students engaged and accountable with this interactive, versatile star life cycles presentation. Embedded frequently within these colorful slides are multiple stopping points that require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the information being presented.

 

There are a variety of softwares you can use (such as Nearpod and Peardeck) that connect to Google Slides to ensure student participation. Alternatively, you could also simply assign each student a copy of this presentation and have them type in the slides directly.

 

Similarly, I want resources that could be used in person, face to face, hybrid, and virtual. My Google Slides lessons are designed to be compatible with multiple styles of teaching, and are perfect for teaching, reteaching, or even sending to absent students.

 

The topics covered in this presentation include:

  • Nebula
  • Protostar
  • Main Sequence Star
  • Red Giant
  • White Dwarf
  • Black Dwarf
  • Supernova
  • Black Hole
  • Nuclear Fission & Fusion

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It comprehensively covers the topics mentioned, and provides opportunities for student responses which can be implemented in a whole group lesson or assigned for homework.

 

How Can I use this Star Life Cycles Presentation?

  • Emergency sub plans
  • An independent work station in a set of stations
  • Flipped classroom pre-reading
  • Differentiation – assign this presentation as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
  • Homework
  • Creation of independent work for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction
  • Use as a square on a choice board

 

What’s Included?

Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

NGSS Standards covered by this Star Life Cycles Presentation:

HS-ESS1-1
Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation. Emphasis is on the energy transfer mechanisms that allow energy from nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to reach Earth. Examples of evidence for the model include observations of the masses and lifetimes of other stars, as well as the ways that the sun’s radiation varies due to sudden solar flares (“space weather”), the 11-year sunspot cycle, and non-cyclic variations over centuries. Assessment does not include details of the atomic and sub-atomic processes involved with the sun’s nuclear fusion.
HS-ESS1-3
Communicate scientific ideas about the way stars, over their life cycle, produce elements. Emphasis is on the way nucleosynthesis, and therefore the different elements created, varies as a function of the mass of a star and the stage of its lifetime. Details of the many different nucleosynthesis pathways for stars of differing masses are not assessed.
