Black Holes Dark and Deadly

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(177)
In this one time class, learners will be taught the amazing phenomenon of black holes through critical thinking questions and discussion.

Class experience

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.
