Black Holes Dark and Deadly
Teacher Caitlin (Mrs. C)
In this one time class, learners will be taught the amazing phenomenon of black holes through critical thinking questions and discussion.
Students will uncover the truth about black holes through instruction, discussion,Quizizz, video and activity models. Black Holes 101 1. What is a black hole? (including the parts and their role) 2. How are black holes formed? (detailed recipe) 3. How do we observe black holes if they are invisible? 4. What happens if you go into a black hole? 5. How does a black hole prevent objects from escaping once they've fallen in? 6. What is a quasar?
Learning objectives: -Students can define gravity as the bending of space deformed by an object. The more mass something has, the stronger the gravitational force. -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. When we get to our space unit, black holes is always without a doubt, a hot topic- this makes my students and I very excited and curious during this unit. My interest in space science goes far back to my middle school days. My personal experience with black holes goes back to college. I loved space science so much, I took an astronomy 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 am a good teacher for this class.
