**This is the chapter slice "An Introduction to the Universe" from the full lesson plan "Galaxies & The Universe"**
Get the big picture about Galaxies and our Universe. From the smallest particles of matter to the biggest star system, our universe is made up of all things that exist in space. Our resource takes you through the Milky Way Galaxy, Black Holes and Gravity, then on to Nebulae, Sources of Light and the Speed of Light, and finally to Quasars, the most distant objects in the universe. Written using simplified language and vocabulary, our resource presents science concepts in a way that makes them accessible to students and easier to understand. Comprised of reading passages, student activities for before and after reading, hands-on activities, and color mini posters, our resource can be used effectively for test prep, whole-class, small group and independent work.
