Space Science in Action: Universe [Videotape].
This videotape recording ponders the wonders of the stars, the solar system, galaxies, and black holes. Students explore questions about the universe including How was it formed?, How big is it?, and How can we explore the far reaches of the universe? Students also learn about light years and the electromagnetic spectrum, and take a close look at a gamma ray telescope. A hands-on activity demonstrates why it seems dark in space even though there are billions of stars. Contents include a teacher's guide designed to help science teachers in grades 5-8 by providing a brief synopsis of the program, pre-viewing and follow-up questions, activities, vocabulary, and additional resources.
