Star Systems & Galaxies – Google Slides Interactive Lesson

$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 systems and galaxies 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:

  • Biogeography
  • Microevolution
  • Fossils
  • Comparative Anatomy
  • Embryology
  • DNA Evidence
  • Cladograms
  • Convergent/Divergent Evolution

 

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 Systems & Galaxies  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 Systems & Galaxies Presentation:

HS-ESS1-2
Construct an explanation of the Big Bang theory based on astronomical evidence of light spectra, motion of distant galaxies, and composition of matter in the universe. Emphasis is on the astronomical evidence of the red shift of light from galaxies as an indication that the universe is currently expanding, the cosmic microwave background as the remnant radiation from the Big Bang, and the observed composition of ordinary matter of the universe, primarily found in stars and interstellar gases (from the spectra of electromagnetic radiation from stars), which matches that predicted by the Big Bang theory (3/4 hydrogen and 1/4 helium).
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.
MS-ESS1-2
Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the motions within galaxies and the solar system. Emphasis for the model is on gravity as the force that holds together the solar system and Milky Way galaxy and controls orbital motions within them. Examples of models can be physical (such as the analogy of distance along a football field or computer visualizations of elliptical orbits) or conceptual (such as mathematical proportions relative to the size of familiar objects such as students’ school or state). Assessment does not include Kepler’s Laws of orbital motion or the apparent retrograde motion of the planets as viewed from Earth.
