This is an activity that use in ninth grade physical science and in earth space science to reinforce the changes that occur as a massive star collapses to form a black hole. It is adapted from NASA's Imagine the Universe webiste.

If you teach ocean science, you have to check out this website from UCLA with a lot of great investigations... I love the Nike Shoe Investigation

I have two activities that I use when we study the formation of sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. The first requires substantial preparation the first year, but it is fun.
