In this interactive, online activity, students view an image of an "oddball" object from the Hubble Deep Field image that has been difficult for astronomers to classify. Students make their own interpretations of the object based upon knowledge... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

In this interactive, online activity, students estimate the distances of objects in the Hubble Deep Field from Earth using the relationship between size, brightness, and distance. Students can complete this activity independently or in small groups.... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

In this interactive, online activity, students practice estimation skills as they begin to explore the Hubble Deep Field image. Students first give a rough estimate of the number of objects in the image. They then use representative sampling... (View More)

Audience: Middle school
Materials Cost: Free

This interactive, online activity allows students to examine the Hubble Deep Field image and simulate the process astronomers have gone through to classify the objects in it. Students classify select objects in the image based on observable... (View More)
