Our Stars lesson plan introduces students to basic information about stars including the life cycle and types of stars. Students are familiar with the closest star, the Sun, which is briefly discussed. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and work together with a partner to write a story about the life of two stars, including lesson material and their own imaginative details; they then read their story to the class, solidifying their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to match signification numbers to their events in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define stars and identify the lifecycle and types of stars in the universe.
