Hubble Space Telescope Banner

I thought you all might like to use another sample worksheet from a
classroom teacher of 8th graders.  Unlike Tim, this is mostly research
using the LFHST Homepages as well as some links on our URL (see below).  My
students worked in pairs and each team had access to a computer for two
50 minute class periods.

Live From the Hubble Space Telescope
Internet Activity
Pick from one of the following projects:

1)      Hubble scientists will be observing three planets on our field
        trip.   Select one of them and design a travel brochure that
        describes unique features, weather, mode of transportation
        and any other facts you find out about your planet.   These are the
        planets:  Neptune, Pluto, and Jupiter.  You will present
        your project to the class on March 22.  Use the TRMS Science
        Resource page to find your information.


2)      Using the Live From the Hubble Space Telescope homepage, under
        the topic “Background,”  research the Hubble Telescope and its
        instruments.  Make a scale model of the telescope and include a key
        identifying all of its parts.  You must also describe the instruments
        on board the telescope -  what their function is, where they are
        located - in your own words.  You will present your project to the
        class on March 22.

3)      Using the Live From the Hubble Space Telescope homepage, under
        the topic “Background,”  research Edwin Hubble’s life and draw a
        timeline of his life.  Include pictures  and make it poster size or
        larger.  You will present your project to the class on March 22.


Submit to me by Friday one from the following:

1)      Compose a Student Stumper of your own and the answer.  To look at

        Student Stumpers, see the LHST homepage under “Kids Corner.”  If

        yours hasn’t been asked yet, we’ll send it in.

2)      Compose a question to Hubble scientists and write a short
        explanation about why you want to know this information.
        If yours is acceptable  we’ll e-mail it.

If you have some extra time in the computer lab...Extra credit!

Answer a Student Stumper correctly.
