This two-book photocopiable series provides teachers with accessible resources for guiding students through some of the more challenging but interesting concepts in astronomy. The activities involve students in problem- solving and cater to a range of learning styles, including cooperative group activities. Book A contents include: stars and constellations; solar eclipses and coronas; dust clouds in space; radiant energy; galaxies in collision; shooting stars; black holes; supernovas, and much more. Book B contents include: analysis of individual planets; the use of global positioning systems; dark matter and gravity; orbits; weather satellites; life on other planets, and much more. Suitable for ages 14 - 16.
