This is an online pre-lab exercise designed to familiarize students the resources for studying our universe that are available on the Hubble Telescope Web site, located at: This is a pre-lab online activity that students complete prior to laboratory sessions concerning the Solar System and the Universe. The students navigate through the web site, learning how to access teaching materials including videos, games, images, "news articles", and historical articles. Students read and analyze articles and videos, and answer questions designed to prepare them for laboratory activities. During lab students will develop a classroom activity for a K-6 classroom, based on the Hubble site. Learn more about the course for which this activity was developed.


University of West Georgia - Life and Earth Science part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Courses
This course employs an integrative, interdisciplinary approach to the study of life and earth science. It introduces basic concepts and key ideas while providing opportunities for students to learn reasoning skills and a new way of thinking about their environment. The laboratory component of the course allows students to have inquiry-based hands-on experience with scientific ideas and principles, tied to state performance standards. The course is part of the Core curriculum at the State University of West Georgia. For Dr. Dodge's reflections on the course and its design, see Life and Earth Science: Role in the Program.
