Day 93: Stellar Life Cycle Projects – Day 1 January 22, 2007

Posted by Admin in Astronomy, Homework.

Today we began the Stellar Life Cycle Project.  Students will construct a project that details the primary stages of a star’s life with pictures and written descrptions.  Students have their choice of 4 projects described on the handout and can even do another project of their chosing as long as I OK it beforehand.  Read the full details on the Stellar Life Cycle Project handout.

All projects must include images and descriptions of all of the stages of a star’s life cycle:

  • Nebula
  • Main Sequence Star
  • Red Giant
  • White Dwarf
  • Supernova
  • Neutron Star
  • Black Hole

A few reminders that are not on the handout:

  • All projects are individual except the video.  No more than two people working together can get credit for any one video.
  • The key here is quality:  It should be obvious to me that you put a sufficient amount of time into this project.  It cannot be completed in a half hour.
  • All projects are due one week from today – Monday, January 29th.

Looking ahead:  Tomorrow we’ll continue with these Stellar Life Cycle projects and then on Wednesday we’ll discuss how solar systems form.  We’ll end the week with two days about the sun:  it’s structure and processes.  The astronomy test will be on Thursday, 02/01/07 with a review session in class and after school on Wednesday, 01/31/07.
