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)

In this activity, students build a model of an active galaxy. From this, they will learn about the geometry of the components of an active galaxy and develop an understanding that different viewing angles can lead to dramatically different... (View More)

Using real data from NASA's Fermi satellite, students determine the size and energy of an active galaxy flare region. This activity includes background information for teachers, student worksheets, procedures, adaptations, extensions, an assessment... (View More)

This activity is intended as a review of the concepts presented in the previous activities as well as an assessment of student understanding of the activities. Learners use the review information from the activities as they answer question and then... (View More)

In this activity, learners classify selected objects from the Hubble Deep Field based on their color and shape. They then compare their classification with a chart made by astronomers. This is activity two of four in the Hubble Deep Field Lesson... (View More)

In this activity, the problems and difficulties of determining the distances between Earth and objects in space is addressed. Learners attempt to arrange five objects from the Hubble Deep Field according to their distances from Earth. After making... (View More)
