The Stars

This The Stars lesson plan also includes:

Three astronomy activities in one resource! Here you will find one hands-on activity, one demonstration, both with discussion questions, and one activity worksheet. During these lessons young scientists discuss how stars are different, their changing temperature and other properties, and how the color of a star does not indicate its distance.
