Black Holes Dark and Deadly: Part 2

*NOTE: THIS IS PART 2 OF THIS SERIES* Imagine a place where nothing can escape. A place so big and dark that not even light can find its way out. I'll bet that sounds like a horror story, but what we're talking about is a black hole!

Description

Class Experience

Overall Learning Objective: To understand what a black hole is and how gravity in a black hole is so extreme and that space near a black hole is warped so much that nothing can escape.

Key Points: 
-Students can define gravity as the bending of space deformed by an object. The more mass something has, the stronger the gravity it creates.
-Students can define black holes as a region in space where gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape.
-Students can explain that black holes do not act like a vacuum that sucks even the materials at great distance from them. Things are only lost into a black hole when they get close enough to the black hole.
I am currently a middle school science teacher at a college preparatory school. When we get to our space unit, black holes is always without a doubt, a hot topic- this makes me and students very excited and curious during this unit.

My interest in space science goes far back to my middle school days myself. My personal experience with black holes goes back to college. I loved space science so much, I took an astrology course in college and at the end of the course we discussed black holes. As my final project, I presented a lecture to my class of 300+ on black holes (on a deeper collegiate level) and during that time of research, I was truly excited and engaged in the work that I was doing. I think because of this passion and interest of my own, I would be a good teacher for this class.
