Description

Our Galaxies lesson plan introduces students to the three major types of galaxies, as well as additional information related to the Milky Way galaxy. During this lesson, students are asked to create a galaxy mobile made with cardboard, which they cut into galaxy shapes, making sure to label them; students are then asked to share them with the class, reinforcing their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define galaxy, recognize, identify, and compare the three main types of galaxies, and summarize information about the Milky Way galaxy.

Excellent resource

I used this with my Year 5 class and they loved it. I really liked the cross-curricular element, mixing Science with Literacy and Art. I adapted the reading comprehension and made it a jigsaw activity, where 2 groups had to find the answers to half of the questions and then pair up with the other group to share their answers. This made it a fun activity, practising listening and speaking skills and teamwork, and reading skills like skimming and scanning. The Glittering Galaxies (as I called it) Art activity was very enjoyable and I put up some images of different types of galaxies on the board which the kids used as inspiration. Thank you!
