Black Hole...Fade-out!

In this black hole instructional activity, students read about how images fade to black when they reach an event horizon of a black hole. Students solve 3 problems about black holes using a given equation for luminosity. They find the time it takes for light to fall to half its luminosity when falling into a black hole and they determine how long it takes for a star being swallowed by a black hole to disappear.

I just transferred mid-year to an art teacher position; it has been more than 15 years since I taught art. I needed some quick ideas to get started. Thank you Lesson Planet!
