Welcome to Kevin C. Hartzog's WEB site.



My students have found most of these Astronomy sites, and you should find them useful in researching information about the solar system, stars, galaxies, and the Universe.

Student Objectives

Students will be able to explain the development and evolution of the Universe. To accomplish this explanation, students will investigate the following items.
Students will make a detailed presentation of the solar system. Students will also used Newton's Laws to explain the motion of the planets. Students will demonstrate their competence by
* creating a PowerPoint presentation that has a scaled model of the solar system,
* giving a verbal presentation of the solar system from which the entire class may take a test upon the solar system,
* and by writing a report describing the solar system.
Students will describe the different types of stars, including the star's birth and development. Students will demonstrate their competence by
* writing a formal report, and by
* creating a series of charts (with HTML or paper).
Students will describe the different types of galaxies, and how Newton's laws explains the development and size of those galaxies. Students will demonstrate their competence by
* cataloguing 20 galaxies, and by
* writing a formal report describing a galaxy.
