Students design a double spiral mobile to illustrate the different stages in the life of a small-mass star like our Sun, and in the life of a large-mass star. They complete both spirals and create a small hole at the top. Next they use a pipe cleaner to join the two spirals together and make a loop for attaching the spirals to a piece of string that they can use for hanging.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver for me, especially when I am in a time crunch and need a resource quickly. While I consider myself a very creative person, sometimes I need to utilize the great ideas of fellow teachers to get my creative juices flowing. Lesson Planet has been pivotal in this regard.
